CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Funeral arrangements have been made for a 22-year old man who was tragically killed in an automobile accident on New Year's Eve.

It was just after 5:45 a.m. Monday when police say a sport utility vehicle traveling north on Kostoryz rolled over after the driver attempted to make a turn onto Staples. Out of the four passengers in that car, only Jonathan Aleman from Corpus Christi was not wearing seat belt. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A funeral and rosary will be held for him at 7 p.m. Friday at the Funeraria Del Angel - Memorial Holly funeral home located at 3442 Holly Road.

"Everybody and anybody who has met my brother is more than welcome to come to the funeral and the rosary," said Joseph Aleman, the victim's brother. "We love you, John, and you'll be dearly missed."

A fund has been set up for the Aleman family to help pay for funeral expenses. It is available at any Wells Fargo Bank under the name Jonathan M. Aleman.
