Family grieves death of relative killed in Socorro racing accident

EL PASO -- Five-year-old Alexas Moshier is having trouble understanding that her 21-year-old sister, Ana Elva Morales, died Tuesday afternoon when her sports utility vehicle was struck by a car going about 100 mph.

Tuesday night, Alexas slept with a photograph of Morales and on Wednesday she continuously asked family members if Morales was really dead.

"It's sad when she says, 'Is my sister really gone?' I say, 'Yes she is honey, but we'd like to believe she's up with God.' I say 'That's the best thing. With grandpa,'" said Alexas's grandmother, Catherine Moshier. "She has her moments when, I think, the realization comes to her."

Alexas' sister died Tuesday after she was struck by one of two cars racing. Her toddler children, who were with her, were injured.

Deputies said Morales was at a stop sign in her 1996 Toyota 4 Runner on Herring and Socorro roads. As she continued north on Herring Road, a 2003 Ford Focus and a 2000 Ford Mustang were traveling east on Socorro Road at high rates of speed, sheriff's said.

As the two cars approached the intersection, the Focus attempted to pass the Mustang on the two lane road and struck Morales' SUV on the driver's side. The SUV then rolled onto its side, deputies said.

Morales died instantly.

Her 4-year-old daughter, Andrea Morales, was thrown several feet from the SUV, and her 1-year-old son, Allan Muņoz, was partially thrown. The children were taken to Thomason Hospital and are in stable condition, deputies and

family said.

Craig Allan Moshier, Morales' step-father, said his grandchildren are out of intensive care and have been asking for their mother.

"They keep asking for mom," he said. "They had never spent a day in their life without their mom."

The driver of the Focus, whose name was not released, was taken to a local hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Mustang, Alberto Valdez, 22, of the 1100 block of Northeast G in Fabens, was not injured.

"It's unbelievable that they could be so short-sighted. Sad part of it is, they're going to pay. At least I would think that justice would mean they pay," said Catherine Moshier, 88. "I feel for their parents too because it's a no win situation."

Morales, she said, had graduated in 2006 from Burges High School, but had gone to Americas High School a couple of years. While at Americas High School, Morales had fallen in love with her now common-law husband, Aldo Muņoz, said Catherine Moshier.

"Nice little family. I feel for Aldo, he's heart broken. They did everything together. It's sad," Catherine Moshier said. "Her babies were everything to her. They knew it, because they were so happy."

Catherine Moshier said she remembers how much her great-grandchildren would giggle when Morales would tickle their bellies while changing their clothes or diapers.

"I have never seen a girl that age to be so completely happy with her life. She was just perfectly content with her life," Catherine Moshier said.

Morales named her son after her step-father, Craig Allan Moshier, who had married her mother, Margarita, when Morales was a toddler.

On Wednesday, Craig Allan Moshier and Morales' common-law husband, Aldo, had to identify Morales' body, Catherine Moshier said.

Her mother, who lives outside of Houston, and her two brothers, Danny Morales and Tony Sanchez, who live in Colorado Springs, Colo., were expected to arrive in El Paso on Wednesday.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

"The fact that she was taken this way (makes me mad). Because of some stupid kids," Craig Allan Moshier said. "This is the hardest. A person should not have to deal with something like this."

Craig Allen Moshier said he is angry and frustrated because deputies told him both men will only be charged with his step-daughter's death, but not for injuring the children.

Deputies said Valdez, the driver of the Mustang, had been previously charged and arrested a racing charge.

On Tuesday, he was arrested and charged with racing on a highway causing death. His bond has been set at $50,000. Charges are pending for the driver of the Focus.

Street racing = Fail

I hope both drivers (Focus and Mustang) have every law and punishment thrown at them for their actions. If one of the people racing would have died I would have laughed, but its tragic the way it ended this time.

Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer

Re: Why the HELL would you race a Mustang and a Focus

While I agree that this is a tragedy, did anyone else notice that the children were THROWN FROM THE VEHICLE? What the crap?!! They could not have been in car seats and been thrown from the vehicle. This part makes me furious. The mother did not give enough of a shit about her kids to make sure that her 1 and 2 year olds were buckled up????

They were buckled up...It said on the news, and the force was so great that it threw the 4 year old and left the 1 year old hanging upside down

Re: Why the HELL would you race a Mustang and a Focus

Now I have been known to move down the road or mess around with a friend.. NEVER in traffic NEVER at 100mph?! and Never to the point at which it would ever be considered racing maybe just pullin back n forth on each other....

I hope those two guys have their licenses revoked, cars burnt in a field while they watch and sentanced to attend and then teach safe driver school for their working years telling everyone why they are there and what they did to somebodies family

Furthermore I think every week they should write a check to the surviving childrens guardian in the amount of 5 dollars and under memo "for killing your mother July 24, 2008" until they reach the age of 18.
