Luis Aleman-Mendoza - a Good Samaritan killed near Lewisville, Texas

Luis Aleman-Mendoza
Luis Mario Aleman-Mendoza, age 18, of Juarez, Mexico, died on July 26, 2015, at a hospital in Lewisville, Texas.

Lewisville is about 25 miles from Dallas.

Luis was visiting from Mexico and was spending the summer with family members.

Just after 4:30 a.m., Luis and his cousin Maria Mojica were returning home from celebrating a relative's birthday at an aunt's house in Dallas.

They came across a rolled over SUV on the highway and stopped to help. Another vehicle also stopped to help.

Luis was out of the vehicle and was attempting to help the crash victim when a fourth vehicle crashed through the accident site and into at least two of the cars and into Luis.

Luis was rushed to a nearby hospital where tragically he succumbed to his injuries.

Luis had recently graduated from high school and wanted to attend college.

Angels of God, pray for Luis
and for those who have lost
It is believed that drunk driving may have been a factor in the crash that killed Luis and also in the original roll-over crash. However, reports are conflicting.

All participants in this tragedy are innocent unless proven guilty.

However we offer this advice to all drivers: If you find that you are wasted, drunk or doped up on street drugs or prescription drugs or if you are falling asleep on your feet, do NOT drive. Call a family member or a friend for a ride; or take a taxi or a bus; or stay where you are until you sober up; or crawl home on your hands and knees. It will be better for you and for the world if you do.

Regret can last a lifetime.

The loved ones of Luis are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He was a good kid with a kind heart. He was always smiling. He is his family's hero. He will be forever mourned.

Luis is survived by many loving friends and family members who will forever miss him.

Pray for justice for Luis. 

God save us from the drunk and the doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that Luis is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
