November 20, 2009 – Jose Funez, 35 from Revere, Massachusetts, has died as a result of serious personal injuries sustained when he involved in a car accident on Saturday night. Jonathan Spano, 29 from Winthrop, was driving a black 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt northbound on Revere Beach Parkway while Funez was crossing the street at the intersection of Winthrop Avenue. Apparently, Spano did not see Funez and unfortunately struck him with the Cobalt.
The accident occurred at around 7:30 p.m. in a poorly lit area during rainy weather. Funez was reportedly dressed in dark clothing. The poor visibility and weather conditions, coupled with Funez’ dark clothing and the dark color of the Cobalt were the likely factors that contributed to the accident.
Funez was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Police say criminal charges against Spano are unlikely.
The accident remains under investigation by the Massachusetts State Police.
