Local Man Killed in Auto Accident
A viewing will be held in Austin Tuesday for a man killed while changing a tire in East Austin.
Feliciano Loredo's daughter's car was parked in the 1700 block of Deloney Street. He and his daughter were talking and laughing with each other when a car came along and struck him.
The car that hit 54-year-old Loredo ended up in the front of a house across the street.
His daughter's car was smashed in the front and tire tools were scattered in the road.
Loredo was transported to Brackenridge where he was pronounced dead.
Charged in Loredo's death is 22-year-old Demetria Crayton. Police say she was intoxicated when she crashed into Loredo who was knelt down changing a tire in front of his home on Deloney Street last week.
Loredo's daughter, Ana, who was with him at the time of the accident, says her dad was a landscaper. He leaves behind a wife, four children, one granddaughter and another grandchild yet to be born.
"It's just not fair that people would drive like that. I see that everyday how people are behaving but this time it affected me. It took away my dad. I was his only girl," she said.
Family and friends of 54-year-old Feliciano Loredo will gather at Superior Memorial Services at 1916 Tillery Street from 5-9 p.m.
A fund has been established for the Loredo family by the Grass Patch where Loredo was employed as a landscaper. To donate, contact any First State Bank of Central Texas. If you have any questions about the fund, please contact Randy Jackson at 512-231-8821.
