double culpable homicide


Díaz was driving his Dodge RAM truck when he apparently crossed the lane and jumped onto the shoulder to avoid a head-on impact with a Renault Kangoo, but his driver, Aldo Alberto Flaque, a 67-year-old firefighter who lived on 25 de Mayo, made the same maneuver and the vehicles collided.

Brian was also passionate about basketball.

He was a fan of Peñarol, like his father, and a supporter of Independiente.

The night of his death, he crossed an avenue, in front of the Gap bowling alley, and a car hit him.

He died for eight days in the Belgrano sanatorium.

The fatal crash of his sister, Barbara, occurred in the context of heavy rain around noon on Tuesday.

The former soccer player from San Lorenzo drove Buenos Aires-La Pampa with sense.

A love story, far from football

Michael Díaz was born in Avellino, Italy, and began his career as a soccer player in San Telmo, bearing the weight of his last name.

In 2007 he went to San Lorenzo, where Ramón was coach, and played alongside his brother Emiliano, who is now his father's field assistant at Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia.

He also played for Defensores de Belgrano, Indios de Chihuahua (Mexico) and Ferro de Trenque Lauquen.

The striker's career never really took off.

Unlike his brother, Michael moved away from soccer and dedicated himself more to the

family business

, forming a closed nucleus with Barbara and her son.

a hunting ground
