Mary-Elizabeth Frizzell says she is not angry with the truck driver involved in a deadly crash that claimed her great-grandchild's life. Justin Kalak, 7, died instantly in a accident on Highway 281 near Hollow Brook Boulevard on Monday.
Frizzell says her husband, 43-year-old Ramon Justo Alvarado Jr., suffered a fractured skull. Their were three people in the SUV at the time, including Kalak's 5-year-old sister Julianne.
She walked away relatively unharmed. Alvarado slammed into a broken down 18-wheeler partially on the shoulder of Highway 281. Witnesses say the truck driver did not have any reflective triangles or flares to warn drivers that the truck was not moving. The San Antonio Police Department has not filed in charges in the crash. Frizzell says investigators tell her that the truck driver is to blame for the crash. However Frizzell says she forgives him, "I feel sorry for him. I forgive him because this is something he has to live with for the rest of his life."
Kalak's family is collecting funds for the little boy's funeral at Chase Bank.
It is set up under Justin Charles Edward Kalak.
