Two people killed by motorists in the Tahoe Park neighborhood were remembered Sunday night.
A vigil was held at the corner of 65th and Broadway to remember two pedestrians struck and killed by motorists over the past month.
Just after 10 p.m. on Monday, April 16, the Sacramento Police Department responded to a report of a pedestrian struck by a motorist in the roadway.
Family, friends and area residents say that man was Joe Cabral, 54, who lived in the Colonial Heights neighborhood. They lit candles, shared memories, and are seeking answers into his death. His daughter Rose Cabral, said her father loved music, was adventurous, and had a kind heart.
An 88-year-old died in Tahoe Park on Saturday, March 31 after being struck and killed by a suspected drunk driver, the Sacramento Bee reports.
Isaac Gonzalez, a board member with the Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates, is calling for changes to the city’s roads to help prevent these accidents from happening.
Gonzalez says changes to roads such as shrinking roads in certain areas could help slow down drivers.
