MESA -- A Mesa family who lost their 17-year-old son in a tragic accident is leaning on the public.
Dwight Brock Jr. was killed over the weekend, run over by his younger sister while the two were messing around in the parking lot of Superstition Springs Mall Saturday evening. Brock was jumping in front of the car and his sister, Nicole, would slam on the brakes.
The last time that happened, Nicole, 16, was unable to stop in time and ran over her big brother.
Dwight's father, Brock Sr., is an employee of Ace Towing. Now the towing community is coming together to help the Brock family. A line of tow trucks was on hand, the first customers at car wash to help raise money to help the Brock family cover funeral costs.
The family is holding a series of car washes over the next several days, the first of which is today until 2 p.m. at the AutoZone at Sossaman and Guadalupe roads. They be back out there Saturday, 9 a.m. until dusk. On Sunday, they'll be at the Circle K at Sossaman and Baseline roads from 9 a.m. until dusk.
In addition, a bank account has been set up at Midfirst Bank in the name of Dwight Brock Jr. Memorial Support Trust.
Services for Dwight are scheduled for this evening at At Season's End Mortuary, 105 S. Delaware Drive in Apache Junction.
