Two teens die in car accident while leaving graduation rehearsal


Two high school seniors have died after they were involved in a crash while returning to school from their graduation practice.
The incident occurred on May 31st in Corpus Christi, Texas.

18-year-olds Matthew Garcia and Marcello Saldua were both said to have died from their injuries and there is no word on the condition of the other two people who were in the vehicle.

While not much is known about the crash at this time, authorities did report that the vehicle was involved in a roll over crash and that they do believe speed was a factor.

The school will have two empty seats at the graduation to honor the teens.
“We want to express our deepest condolences to the families of the two seniors we lost today,” said Superintendent Dr. Roland Hernandez. “We appreciate our community’s prayers for our district during what continues to be an incredibly challenging time for us as well as for educators across the nation.”
