Rock Benefit For John Cervoni And Aaron Carrillo
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families!
EL PASO, Texas -- The man accused of driving drunk and killing two teens who were helping a stalled friend on the side of the road was driving on the shoulder of the road well before striking the 16-year-olds, according to a police report of the crash. John Cervoni and Aaron Carrillo, both 16, were trying to jump start a fellow band member's car on Loop 375 on Friday, when Hector Tellez, 32, allegedly crashed into the stalled car. Cervoni and Mark Dobbs, another band member, were in the car Tellez allegedly hit. Carrillo was outside the car trying to jump start the vehicle. He was thrown 80 feet by the impact of the crash.
Ryan Bustillos, the bassist for the band, Ancient of Days, said he got to the crash minutes after it happened and before police. "We said there was a third person and we didn't know where he was, so we found his shoe laying by the car and we were like, 'Where is he, that was Aaron's shoe,' and we saw the Fire Department shine the light and we were like, 'Oh crap, I think they found Aaron.' And I saw his body just laying there and I turned around; I didn't even want to look at it. As soon as I turned around, I just saw them put the white sheet on him. I couldn't believe it," Bustillos said. The teens had just finished playing a show. It was the one-year anniversary of the teenager's Christian rock band and the 17th birthday of the band's lead guitarist, Austin Romero. The day before, the four teens had gone to Bob O's for a day of fun. Romero described it as the "funnest day of the summer."Read the rest at kvia.com
