Service to honor motorists killed on Krome Avenue
Miami Herald | News
It’s a 37-mile stretch on the western edge of Miami-Dade County, where one lane going in each direction leaves little room for error. It’s lined with narrow shoulders, and in some patches, there is little to no lighting.
But Dolores Barreto’s son, Cory, had to take Krome Avenue. He was helping a friend install a water line to prep his property for agriculture, and Krome was the way to access the west-edge property.
As he was heading home in the passenger seat of a friend’s car, the vehicle collided head-on with a truck going in the opposite direction. He and the driver were killed.
“He hadn’t even gotten his driver’s license,” Barreto said.
