I’ve gotten a couple of reader e-mails about a memorial scene that’s popped up on Narrows Drive in West Tacoma.

We noticed skid marks, a broken fence, and a roadside memorial with flowers and balloons. It appears a car hit the tree. Do you know anything about what happenned? Or when? We will say a prayer for whoever was involved.

This is what I know.

A vehicle crashed early Saturday. Darrell Veliz Jr., 26, was killed. I don’t know anything else about the circumstances.
