San Antonio, Texas—Fred Jolayemi of Phoenix died on Christmas Eve as a result of serious injuries he sustained in an accident just outside of San Antonio, Texas this past Wednesday.

Mr. Jolayemi and his family were traveling from Arizona to Florida when they were involved in a minor accident on Interstate 10 hear Leon Springs outside San Antonio. Police were dispatched as well as a tow truck.

A vehicle driven by Natalie Suzanne Saldana, age 30, was driving at a speed of approximately 90 miles per hour when she struck the patrol car. That impact sent the deputy's vehicle flying into the air. It traveled 75 feet before striking the tow truck. The patrol car flipped and landed on top of Mr. Jolayemi and his wife, pinning both underneath.

Mr. Jolayemi was airlifted to University Hospital for treatment but died two days later. Mr. Jolayemi's daughter, who was in the patrol car keeping warm, also sustained injuries.

According to reports, Ms. Saldana had been at a bar where she consumed four vodka drinks. Although police have not disclosed the blood alcohol concentration test results, she has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and her bail was set at $100,000.

We offer our deepest condolences to Fred Jolayemi's family and friends for this tragic loss, made worse by the reckless actions of Ms. Saldana. We also wish Mr. Jolayemi's wife and daughter speedy and complete recoveries from their injuries.
