LONG BEACH, CA (November 4, 2019) – Raihan Dakhil, Joseph Awaida, and their young son Omar were walking on a sidewalk in the evening on Halloween in Long Beach when they were struck by a driver suspected of DUI.

According to reports, Joseph Awaida died the morning after the incident. He was 30 years old.

Omar died on Saturday from his injuries. He was three years old.
