Drew Perez, 19, looks down at a photo of his brother, Michael Perez, 17, while describing Michael as a good kid Monday in Immokalee. Michael Perez and his girlfriend Amanda Alvarado were killed Monday around 5:10 a.m. when he was driving behind 22-year-old Beatriz Martinez on Westclox Street. 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 a 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, Alvarado, were also ejected. Neither was wearing a seat belt. Martinez is in serious condition.
