Operation H.O.P.E. Helps With Funeral Expenses For Crash Victims
Operation H.O.P.E. along with Perches Funeral HMS will be assisting families of the young individuals who passed away in the tragic car accident that took place last Thursday.
Both Perches Funeral HMS and Operation H.O.P.E. have teamed up to help out the families of the victims during this difficult time. So far they are in contact with the families of three of the seven victims but are asking for the rest of the families to come forward to help with their funeral expenses.
On Thursday early morning (June 25th), seven people died after a car fleeing the U.S. Border Patrol crashed in downtown El Paso.
In a statement made by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection - patrol agents had responded to a report of suspicious activity near the border. When agents arrived, they saw a suspicious vehicle (2019 Chevrolet Cruze) and initiated a stop, however, the driver drove off at high speed instead.
According to the El Paso Police Department, as the driver failed to stop, the agents ended their pursuit but soon after identified the car at the intersection of West Paisano Drive by West San Antonio Avenue near Union Depot where it had crashed into a semitrailer that was parked on private property.
According to officials, the vehicle had been carrying 10 people and the high impact crash left seven dead and 3 others seriously injured.
Even though the circumstances that lead to the deadly crash are yet to be determined and the investigation continues - Operation H.O.P.E. and Perches Funeral HMS are stepping in to help out the families of the victims and ask the rest of the families come forward to help ease the burden of funeral expenses.
Operation H.O.P.E. asks that the remaining families of the victims reach out for assistance by calling 915-590-0490.
