ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A 26-year-old man, who was killed in a motorcycle crash Wednesday, suffered a similar fate as his father.
Joey Salazar’s mother, Peggie Salazar, said, “His dad died on a motorcycle. It wasn’t from drinking and driving. I drive a motorcycle. It’s not a toy. It’s not something to be messing around with.”
Police say alcohol and speed may have played a factor in the crash that killed Joey.
But Peggie wants people to remember the good things about her son and learn from his mistakes.
“If someone is on the side of the road, my son always stopped to help them. He’s just a beautiful person,” Peggie said. “I just want you to know to be careful. Don’t drink and drive. I don’t know he was drinking and driving. He may have been.”
Joey’s older brother, Jeff Salazar, said, “He loved all people He would take his shirt off for anybody. He was great to his family. He loved his family and we love him.”
Police say Joey was dragged by a semi after hitting a barrier. Police said he survived the initial crash but was killed after being hit by at least two cars.
