Man accused in Centre Street hit-and-run previously convicted of impaired driving

A Calgary man, charged in connection with a fatal hit-and-run on Monday morning, could face life in prison.

Police laid charges against Dilan Ursan, 25, in connection with the death of Moises Morales, 26, on Centre Street early Monday morning.

Court documents confirm Ursan had been previously convicted of impaired driving on two separate occasions.

  • In March of 2008, Ursan received a $700 fine, a $105 surcharge and had his driver's licence suspended for one year after pleading guilty to impaired driving
  • In May of 2008, Ursan received a $600 fine, a $90 surcharge and had his driver's licence suspended for one year after entering a guilty plea on charges related to driving with a blood alcohol level in excess of .08

On Monday, at approximately 4:00 a.m., police were called to the scene of a crash involving a pedestrian in the 4000 block of Centre Street N.

The victim was hit and dragged by a vehicle which failed to remain at the scene. The 26-year-old man, identified by family members as Morales, was taken to hospital but later succumbed to his injuries.

The driver later returned to the scene and turned himself into police custody.

Police are crediting the media with getting information out quickly. "I think it was more due to the face that our partners in the press put out the information against him and he realized that we were after him, you guys were after him, the community was after him and I think he realized that he better come forward and that's what he did," says Sgt. Colin Foster with the CPS.

Ursan was charged with hit-and-run causing death and the 25-year-old could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Police say that Ursan admitted to having a few drinks before getting behind the wheel, but impaired driving would be nearly impossible to prove given the amount of time between the incident and when he turned himself in.

Police are also looking for another person who was in the car at the time the crash occurred,

The victim, originally from Nicaragua, is remembered by family as a hard worker who never caused trouble.

"He was an excellent kid," his stepfather Harold said. "He was a hard worker. He even worked on holidays. He was a workaholic and never had any problems, never involved in alcohol or drugs or stuff like that."

Morales is survived by his mother, stepfather and five siblings, ranging in age from three to 28.

His brother says he hopes the accused gets what he deserves. "He took my treasure and that was my brother, the other half of my heart," Ulysses Morales Moreno said. "Nobody just takes my brother like that. Justice is gonna pay and give him what he deserves."

Ursan has been released from custody. There is no information when he is next expected to appear in court.
