After learning that Carlos Mendoza, a 20-year-old driver of a gray Dodge Charger, had been killed in a car accident, the Mendoza family let out nothing but guttural cries. According to his cousin Kimberly Billegas, he loved cars.
She stated, “Driving vehicles and cars like that was his thing.”His passion was sports cars.He took pictures of them because he loved them.
According to the Markham Police Department, Mendoza was traveling eastbound on 159th Street near the I-294 overpass when he lost control, crossed the median, and hit a Mitsubishi SUV head-on.Mendoza was killed when the dodge caught fire, as was the SUV’s driver, Homewood’s Zachary Kulak, 30.
According to Markham Police Department Deputy Chief Samuel Harris, “The BMW, in an attempt to avoid the crash, ended up striking, rear-ending a second vehicle and they both went over the median in the secondary crash.”
A BMW driven by a nurse and a Hyundai SUV driven by an off-duty Cook County Corrections officer were involved in that secondary collision.At the scene, he was treated and released.The nurse is seriously ill but stable at the hospital.
According to the police, a passenger in the Dodge was partially engulfed in flames. He was saved by officers and taken to a critical care facility.
Harris stated, “He’s in bad shape right now.”
Mendoza’s cousin said that he and his friend were returning from the mall.
She stated, “He never did anything bad, like nothing.”
According to Markham police, speed probably caused the accident.Additionally, they assert that drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor.
The police are investigating whether street racing was involved in the incident.
