A friend has reported that Diego Gamboa was killed last night in San Antonio as he rode his moped. I don’t have any further details right now. We will miss you Diego.
EDIT (6/18/07): Diego’s brother Mando is collecting photos, videos or memories of Diego. If you would have something to share, contact Mando through his profile and also consider sharing in the comments to this story.
EDIT (10:59am): Tom Leitner located an article in the San Antonio Express-News about the crash:
Mo-ped driver killed in two-vehicle crash
A 45-year-old man was killed Tuesday when his mo-ped slammed into a minivan when it pulled out in front of him, traffic detectives said.
The man, whose name was not released pending notification of his next of kin, was heading east in the 4500 block of Walzem Road, near Austin Highway. Around 2 p.m., a driver in a minivan suddenly pulled out of Walzem Elementary School, and the mo-ped crashed into the rear end of the van.
That 49-year-old minivan driver was expected to be charged for not having a driver’s license, police said.
EDIT (10:00am): A little more information on this tragic event. Diego was riding his moped on a busy San Antonio street when a car pulled out in front of him. Diego hit the car and was also hit by the car behind him.
