What horror in this tragedy. It all was a freakish accident. I cannot imagine what both these drivers are going through mentally, it must be a night mare to both of them. I pray all involved find the peace and closure they will require.

Was he here legally is the only question that should be asked. All other consideration are pointless!

I thought the same thing too after reading the article. But as tragic as it is for the two drivers, it must be hellish for the family of this man.
The death of Guido Salvador Carabajo-Jara, means that a child lost her father, parents lost a son, a woman lost her husband and siblings lost a brother. And he may not have died after first being struck by the SUV. Just the idea of that poor man being dragged to his death must surely compound the pain his family is going through.

I guess we can call it a good start in reducing the illegals in America.

Why didn't the driver stop, park his car, and get out after he ran over the body???

According to the article the driver of the SUV did stop and call the cops. Possibly in the interim of stopping and calling the cops, the driver of the van, being two cars back and not having seen the accident or the victim, ran over him, entrapping him underneath the van.

Hey ramdan, maybe some of the people on that flight that crashed outside Buffalo were illegal immigrants.

You have have 48+ potential reasons to celebrate! Have fun jacking off to the YouTube videos of the fire.

Wasn't the 1970's flick "Eraser Head" about a similar incident?

Just how do the cops know the victim was killed by the first driver?
It's possible the poor fellow was alive for a time while being dragged.

well, if they're parents are in the U.S. illegally, they should've known better...

atleast the Streets of Brooklyn and Queens now can feel his essence since he was dragged
