Sajche said he was a regular customer of a food truck operated by one of the victims, Miguel Luna.

"That's why we are surprised when we heard he was one of those guys involved in the accident," Sajche said. "That's why we are trying to get all people together to try to support. It's very hard for those people, you know, you go to work and you never know if you are going to come back."
