There are no words to describe the impact that D.M. had on the people around him. He was more than good people, he was the best. I as well extend my deepest condolences to his family. D.M. had an old soul, kind eyes, and a soft heart, especially for those he loved. The world was a better place with him here. Goodbye my friend.

Allegedly this was the result of a police chase after a hit and run at Santa Ana Casino. Santa Ana PD and Bernalillo PD were both chasing the vehicle.

I think you are mistaken. Never once has anyone stated that this was a police chase.

I guess it may be. But knowing him I cannot imagine how he could be caught in a police chase.

Should be "Man dies in accident" or "Man in fatal accident" instead of putting dies and fatal in the same sentence. I agree, who writes this stuff?

I think YOU are wrong. I did read that it was a police chase. If memory serves me, the article read: "Traffic was backed up because of a police chase." No, this man was not involved in the police chase, however the chain of events from the police chase contributed to his cause of death. Now, I admit my memory fails me and I do not recall if I read it in the Journal, on the KRQE website or on your website. This is old news so my reply is outdated, but could not resist writing this, especially after reading a couple of your "responsibility denial" responses in this thread. The first writer is accurate, you did have "fatal" written as "fatl" and I've seen many, many errors in typing, spelling and simple grammar (such as using there for their on the KOB website! Tch, tch! Overall, it IS a good website. Take heart, we all make mistakes.
