“The boy slid out of the front of the van and was lying on the ground. And I saw the kid on both forearms looking at the van,” Gudzak said. The security camera at his home captured the entire incident. Police say they were able to use Gudzak’s surveillance footage to identify and arrest Arena.

Chris Crinigan, one of Barbosa’s friends, told CBS that the teenager “had a really bright future.” He said Barbosa was on his way to his house when the accident occurred.

Julián Guindi, another friend of Barbosa’s, said that he was “calling him and calling him and calling him and he didn’t answer,” CBS reported. The two paid their respects to their late friend at the crash site, where a growing memorial of balloons and flowers has materialized, reported.

They have taken it senselessly. The people, we are not doing well. The children are learning to cry.”
