Dante DeLeon, 16, killed in head-on crash with semi truck on Grandview Road in Ferndale, Washington
Francis says they don’t believe alcohol or drugs played a role for the surviving drivers. They won’t know about the DeLeon until they get toxicology results.
DeLeon’s family and friends have set up a memorial at Quest Karate, 1920 Main St. #4, at the Carnation Building in Ferndale.

DeLeon was pronounced deceased at the crash site. The male drivers of both the semi and the U-Haul struck following the initial crash are not seriously injured.
What money damages are recoverable in a death claim?
Every death from an accident is tragic. When a death is the result of someone else’s negligence, certain survivors may make a wrongful death claim against those responsible. Close relatives may recover monetary damages for the loss of financial support, as well as for medical, funeral, and burial expenses, lost earnings, and in some cases for pain, suffering, and loss of love and affection.
