Teen killed: 2 dead and at least 2 injured in wrong-way crash on Highway 225 near Scarborough, says Pasadena PD

PASADENA, Texas (KTRK) — The family of a 17-year-old killed in a wrong-way fall in Pasadena is mourning the loss of their loved one, according to Pasadena Police Department.

The video above is from a previous report.

Two weeks ago, David Bocanegra celebrated his 17th birthday at the Papasito restaurant.

His family described the teenager as very responsible, serious but light-hearted with a dry sense of humor.

“He loved taking his mother out to lunch. As soon as he had a job and money, that was the first thing he wanted to do,” said David’s stepfather, Daniel Castillo Jr.

His family is now planning David’s funeral.

Around 1:42 a.m. Saturday, the prospective Northbrook High School senior was driving around with his two best friends.

The Pasadena Police Department says they collided with a woman who appeared to be driving the wrong direction on Highway 225 near Scarborough.

“We believe we had a wrong-way driver,” PPD Officer KE Oliver said.

David’s mother shared her attempt to find her son through her grief on Saturday morning.

“I kept calling him. I kept calling him. I kept calling him. I sent him a message,” Melina Garcia said.

Investigators say David and his two friends were taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His two friends were hurt but OK.

The suspect who caused the accident died at the scene.

The police are now trying to determine whether she was drunk.

“I never thought it would happen to my brother. I always see it on the news, but never in a million years have I seen it coming,” said David’s brother Marcos Bocanegra.

David, who had a passion for cars, wanted to attend trade school so he could work on high-end vehicles, but that dream was dashed for a young man just starting his life.

His family set up GoFundMe to help cover unexpected expenses at his funeral.
