COLLIER CO. Fla -- A tragic collision on I-75 killed a Naples cook, his wife and their unborn child Friday. Now, his co-workers are raising money to support two boys left behind.
Employees say they are still in shock after this devastating collision. The family was driving to Miami International Airport - to fly to Cuba for vacation but never made it.
Now, co-workers are asking the community for help.
"He was such a good friend is all I can say, you know? It was really sad the situation - all what happened, never expected that," said co-worker Alex Avila.
Friends and co-workers can't believe Amauri Carralero, 38, known as "Chino" will not be coming back to work.
"What a tragedy. who would think someone going on vacation to see their parents and gone in the blink of an eye. Its horrible," said restaurant owner Paul Landi.
Now, L'appetito owner Paul Landi says he will match all donations that go in this jar, in honor of his former employee.
A two-car crash on I-75 in Miami-Dade county killed "Chino" and his wife Nadia Tomasi Friday morning. She was expecting the couple's first child.
"We're still in shock. Im just trying to do everything I can just to help this family and trying to get the schools involved trying to get the local community involved. as far as I can take it I guess," said Landi.
So far, donations exceed $800.
