The family of a man who died in a motorcycle accident is asking for your help Tuesday night, to lay their loved one to rest.
Almost two weeks ago, 34-year old Frank Trevino was hit by a driver who failed to yield at an intersection. Now, his family says they are having to borrow money to bury him.
The family is struggling to make ends meet. They said Trevino did not have life insurance, and that has made it harder to bury him.
The accident happened at around 8:30 p.m. on June 30, at the intersection of Horne and Port. Trevino was driving a blue Suzuki Colt motorcycle when a Chevrolet Lumina made an improper turn on the intersection and ran into his bike.
The driver got a ticket for having an expired driver's license and disregarding traffic control devices. Trevino was taken to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
The family said Trevino did not have life insurance, and that is making it harder for them to make funeral arrangements. They have not been able to get money through the at-fault driver's insurance because, since the accident happened, they said police haven't been able to find him.
"We haven't been able to resolve anything," said Nick Ramirez, Trevino's brother-in-law. "We have been having problems with the insurance company regarding the accident. We are doing everything we can to get him buried and put him to rest."
Trevino's family has set up an account for him at the Kleberg Bank. The account is under Frank Trevino, and any donations will go to help with funeral expenses. The family said they will also have a benefit later in the month.
The rosary will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Saxet Funeral Home. Trevino will be buried at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Memory Gardens.
