Family Mourns Loss of 11-Year-Old

The family of 11-year-old Giovanni are in mourning from the loss of their son who died a week after a car accident left him in a coma. Mother, Shannon Martinez, was in the car with her son Giovanni, two-year-old daughter and newborn when the accident occurred. The family thinks the accident could have been prevented if there was a traffic signal at the intersection where the accident took place. "How many more fatal accidents do you want for something to be done," asked Howard Benito, the victim's stepfather. County Commissioners say there should be one put in by January or February but Giovanni's stepfather is not satisfied.
