INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 1, 2016) -- The public is invited to remember the lives of a 12-year-old girl and two adults killed in a horrific car crash two days before Christmas.
Rogelio "Ro" Legorreta, 59, was driving his friend Rebeca Rodriguez-Gomez, 52, home from work on the south side December 23.
The pair, along with Rodriguez-Gomez's 12-year-old daughter Jasmine Alday-Rodriguez, were killed when a Mustang crossed the median on South East Street at a high rate of speed, hitting them head on.
Witnesses told police the Mustang, driven by Connor Tomlinson, appeared to be racing a Corvette on the wet roads before it lost control. Three passengers in Tomlinson's car survived.
The crash is still under investigation, according to an IMPD spokesperson, and the Marion County Prosecutor's Office will decide whether or not to file charges.
In the meantime, fundraisers have been set up for all three victims.
Legoretta worked at Outback Steakhouse on the south side. His co-workers set up a fund for his funeral expenses online, saying "Ro was one of our salad/dessert guys that always had a smile on his face and loved to joke around."
Family members also set up an online fund for Rodriguez-Gomez and her daughter. She worked at the Holiday Inn South, where a co-worker told FOX59 she was loved for her positive attitude and kindness. Her daughter was born in Indianapolis.
"Rebeca made many loving friends in the 15 years she lived in Indianapolis," family members said on her fundraising site.
All three victims will be flown to Mexico to be buried alongside family, pending funeral costs.
Visitation will be held Saturday, January 2 at Usher Funeral Home from 2-8 p.m. Family members said anyone from the public is encouraged to attend and they hope to thank those who have contributed funds or offered support.
