A father spoke about his devastation over the loss of his family members after his 2 children died and his wife suffered severe injuries.
Jesus Cardoza said that his wife and 2 daughters were on their way home from a doctor’s appointment when a truck smashed into their car in Antioch, California.
His wife Edith and daughters, 2-year-old Camila Cardoza and 4-year-old Lenexy Cardoza, were rushed to a hospital.
Lenexy died soon after arriving at the hospital and doctors were desperately trying to save her sister. Sadly, she too succumbed to her injuries and has now died.
Edith suffered a broken back and ribs and she received stitches on her head.
According to police, 23-year-old Noe Saucedo was driving a stolen Ford F-250 when a deputy pursued him.
The Contra Costa County official had not activated his lights or sirens. While Saucedo was trying to evade police, he accelerated and passed a red-light.
He then crashed into the family’s car.
Saucedo of Pittsburg was charged with murder, felony evading, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of heroin, according to the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office.
Jesus is furious with the man who destroyed his family. However, he is also putting blame on the police officer.
Jesus said that the officer should have activated his sirens to warn other drivers about the danger of the speeding vehicle.
