The Lake Union is saddened by the loss of Pastor Justo Morales, who lost his life in a car accident on Monday, June 7. We shared the news of his passing last week and since then, details surrounding the accident have emerged from the police report.
Morales and his wife, Rosa, were traveling westbound on E. Shawnee Road around 8:30 p.m. on Monday, June 7, after visiting family in Berrien Springs, Mich., when a truck failed to stop at a stop sign on Garr Road and struck them.

Rosa remains in stable condition and is being transferred to a hospital in the Chicago, area where she will undergo surgery and follow-up care.
