Veteran CHP Officer Jesus Manuel Magdaleno Jr., 33, was killed in the Sunday morning wreck and his sister’s husband, Felix Brandon Cruz III, 31, was pronounced dead Monday evening at University Medical Center in Las Vegas.
A memorial ride is being organized in memory of the two men.
Sarah Mitchell, one of the event’s organizers, said that it is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. The ride will start at A&W Restaurant at 2611 South Mooney Blvd, and go up to Pizza Factory, at 40915 Sierra Dr, in Three Rivers.
Mitchell, whose family is neighbors with the Cruz family, said that Cruz, who went by Brandon, had a love for cars and motorcycles and that Magdaleno was an avid outdoorsman. She is devastated by their passing.
“It’s just horrible,” Mitchell said. “I can’t wrap my head around it.”
