Phoenix, Arizona—Osbaldo Martinez was killed August 4th in a horrific accident when his 2000 Volkswagen Jetta was t-boned by another driver traveling at more than 100 miles per hour.  Victor Cepeda, age 19, is charged with manslaughter after his 2016 Dodge Ram pickup truck collided with Mr. Martinez’s car in the intersection at 51st Avenue and Osborn Road.

Police accident investigators report that the airbag control module in Cepeda’s truck recorded speeds of 100 mph immediately prior to the crash.  Mr. Martinez was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.

Cepeda and his 15 year old female passenger were transported to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Mr. Martinez leaves behind his wife, Isabel, and a nine-month-old daughter.  We extend our condolences to his family and friends at this time of great loss for them.
