Pavliak was rushed to Gulf Coast Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.
The driver of the second car was not hurt.

It is difficult having to face the fact that a loved one is no longer there, but even more troublesome is coming to learn that they were brutally killed by the hands of malicious individuals. Justice needs to be sought in response to this criminal act, although at the firm of Percy Martinez for personal injury, we fully comprehend and emphasize with these victims because no amount of compensation can ever bring a loved one back. Along with the criminal punishments that these individuals will face, they could face the legal sanctions of a civil lawsuit for wrongful death.
