3 dead after crash in Pr. William

By Martin Weil

Three people were killed early on Christmas morning when the car they were in crashed into a building in Northern Virginia, authorities said.

The crash occurred just before 2 a.m. in the 17700 block of Main Street in Dumfries, Prince William County police said.

Police identified the victims as Alexander Membreno-Potillo, 20; the driver, Roger Adalid Membreno, 22, a passenger, and a second passenger, Jose Ernesto Mejia-Lopez, 42.

All three lived at the same address on Cliff Circle, in Stafford, police said.

Details of the relationship among the three were not available immediately.

Police said the vehicle was traveling south on Main Street at high speed when it failed to negotiate a curve and instead went straight ahead. It hit a median and then the building.

A storefront was heavily damaged and the apartment above it was evacuated, police said.

The author suggests their relationship to one another was unknown. Well, maybe they all had the same coyote and the same SSN.

Just sayin.....

Fortunately, they ran into a building and not some innocent American.

Really, you are going to suggest that they "share the same SSN" based on what? their names?
What makes you so special? Your being born here is simply a lucky moment for you and an unlucky moment for the rest of the country. Being proud of being born an American is like being proud you have hair. You did not do anything. You are not special. So have some consideration for the families that lost these three. One other thing, did someone really try to push car insurance from this disaster?
What a piece of trash.
