Services in Miami Tuesday for victim of wrong-way crash on I-95

A memorial service for Lily Marie Azarcon Tuason, one of four young adults killed in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 95 last week, will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Florida Funeral Home & Crematory, 1495 NW 17th Ave. in Miami.

Two viewings at the funeral home precede the service: from 6 -9 p.m. Monday and noon-2 p.m. Tuesday.

Cremation will take place after the service, and the remains will be returned to her native Philippines.

Azarcon, 26, the mother of an 8-year-old daughter, was in the United States on business for a Philippines-based land-development company, when she and colleague Dennis R.R. Ortiz, friend Kristina Almase and Almase’s brother, Navy petty officer 2nd class Albertson Almase, died in a horrific crash about 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Willie Dumel, 25, who was speeding north in the southbound lanes of I-95, fleeing police in a Chevy Suburban, smashed into the Kia Sorento that Ortiz was driving.

The four passengers, none older than 33, died at the scene of blunt force trauma.
