California AA Accident Attorneys

A tow truck driver was killed after an accident caused by a suspected drunk driver on the 405 Freeway early Sunday morning in Signal Hill.

According to local police reports, the crash took place at around 2 a.m. in the northbound lanes of the freeway near Cherry Avenue, where 27 year old Faapuna “Mack” Manu was assisting a disabled Merced Benz, filling a spare tire.

While on the shoulder of the highway, a passing vehicle driven by 26 year old Raymond Hurley, a resident of Los Angeles, lost control and crashed into Manu and his truck, killing him at the scene. Two passengers inside the downed Mercedes were not hurt.

“The last text that he did text me was, ‘I love you,’ and I texted him back, ‘I love you, too,’” said Tarina Guess, Manu’s fiancée. “Nothing can express how I feel. We have three kids together… We were trying to save all our money to have a nice, big wedding for the family together.”

At the accident site, police arrested Hurley and booked him into a local jail on suspicion of felony driving under the influence. A court date has not been set to receive his formal charges.

Along with his work as a tow truck driver, Manu was also a rap artist, and former semi-pro football player. “He was an extraordinary guy, whatever he did he did a good job at,” said longtime friend Reginald Hughes. “He was the guy to be around; he was a lot of fun. It’s going to be tough this holiday without him,” added Michael Harris, his cousin.

His mother also added that “Every day when he’d go to work he’d come to me so I could give him his blessing before he went to work. Then we all got kisses before he left.”
