PLANO, TX — Plano police spokesman Rick McDonald explains that there were no witnesses to the accident that left two people dead in the wake of a crash that occurred during the early morning hours of Saturday, October 10.
The two male victims were found inside a 2000 Plymouth that had struck a concrete block which served as the base of a light pole. “It appears they were driving northbound in a right hand turn lane, and they failed to change lanes at Highland Drive,” McDonald said. The single car accident occurred in the 2500 block of Preston Road.
The driver, identified as 20-year old Perfecto Sarinana-Ayala, was a resident of Frisco Texas. At the time of the report, the passenger’s identity was pending until the man’s next of kin could be notified. While McDonald explained that the cause of the accident is still under investigation, Plano police believe that alcohol and excessive speed contributed to the weekend crash.
