This mobile home on Westclox Street in Immokalee was damaged after a car struck it just after 5 a.m. on Monday. The accident killed two people - Michael Perez, and Amanda Alvarado, both 17, who were in separate cars. Around 5:10 a.m. on Monday, 22-year-old Beatriz Martinez was driving a 2010 Dodge Charger west on Westclox Street ahead of 17-year-old Michael Jon Perez, who was driving a 2004 Hyundai Elantra, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. As Perez overtook Martinez, the right side of his Hyundai struck the rear of her Dodge, causing both vehicles to spin out. The Hyundai overturned twice, struck a utility pole and electric box with the driver's side, and then crashed into the mobile home. Perez, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected. The Dodge struck a shoulder, overturned, and struck a barbed wire fence. Martinez and her passenger, 17-year-old Amanda Alvarado, were also ejected. Neither was wearing a seat belt.
