83 year old Juan Perez was reportedly driving a Ford Taurus carrying three of his grandchildren on Palm Avenue when they attempted to turn onto Cypress Avenue. An oncoming Acura reportedly struck the Taurus at a high rate of speed, forcing both vehicles into a nearby grassy area, and both vehicles caught on fire. The Taurus also overturned after the accident.
83 year old Juan Perez, 17 year old Nicolas Luna, 8 year old Vanessa and 7 year old Aiden were all tragically killed as a result of the accident. The driver of the Acura is in critical condition at a local hospital. The accident remains under open investigation to determine cause and liability at this time.
