Marco Antonio Torres Perez, a 22-year-old father of two, lost his life in a terrible accident that occurred in Davidson, North Carolina (NC). The driver of a 2004 Chevy Impala reportedly slammed into Mr. Perez's SUV on Mooresville Road.
Sadly, Mr. Perez was pronounced dead at the scene while his partner, Marilyn Manciabelloso and his his 8-year-old son suffered serious injuries as a result of the wreck (Charlotte Observer, 08-31-13).
Our deepest condolences go out to the Perez family. Losing someone you love is never easy, but the pain is made even worse when the loss is sudden and unexpected. It also has to be infuriating to think about the fact that this terrible tragedy may have been avoidable if the other driver operated their vehicle with due care.
News reports state that the at-fault driver of the Impala was traveling at least 10 miles over the posted speed limit and crashed into Mr. Perez's vehicle after overcorrecting, according to the Charlotte Observer. The at-fault driver of the Impala was charged with misdemeanor death.
