FAIRFAX STATION, Va. – “This is wrong. I was enraged,” says a friend of 54-year-old Paul Krause who was killed Monday night on Route 1 near Ft. Belvoir.
Krause was hit head-on after being pushed into on-coming traffic by a drunk driver who then ran from the scene with his own 3-year-old child. Thirty-three-year-old Carlos Sanchez-Ramos is charged with child endangerment, hit and run, aggravated involuntary manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.
“When that guy decided to take the keys after he had already taken a sip, to walk in that car, he’s already chose to take someone’s life. And he took the wrong person’s life,” said Quyen Phan Le.
Phan Le is a Tai Kwon Do coach on the National Olympics team, on which Krause’s three daughters are members. Christina Krause, 23, and Cheryl Krause, 20, attend George Mason University. Shaina Krause is in high school. They and their mother were too distraught to speak about the tragedy.
Phan Le has coached the girls for many years. He was overtaken by emotion as he talked about Paul Krause. He says the retired Army Colonel, and engineer at SAIC, was like a father to him. ….MORE
