Family mourns truck driver slain while making delivery

Posted on : 11-06-2009 | By : Truckdriversnews | In : Jason's Law, truck driver Industry


It started as a routine late-night delivery to a small-town auto parts store in Arizona, a stop that Morteza Tajik had made numerous times during his 12 years as a San Diego-based truck driver for Napa Auto Parts.

The trip ended in bloodshed early on June 4, when the 55-year-old grandfather was beaten and stabbed in front of the store in Somerton, Ariz., outside Yuma and near the Mexico border.

“He was ambushed and murdered for nothing,” his daughter, Sunia Tajik, said yesterday from the family’s home in Rancho Bernardo. “Our family is just devastated.”

Sunia, 28, and her sister Sarah, 21, appeared in a Yuma County courthouse Tuesday to watch the arraignment of two gang members charged with murder in the slaying. Israel Lopez, 21, and Jose Nunez, 20, were arrested Saturday and remain in a Yuma County jail in lieu of $3 million bail each.

A third man was also arrested in connection with the case, but he was released when prosecutors decided not to file charges against him, Somerton police Officer Edward Quintero said.

A 17-year-old is also being sought for questioning.

Another example of where “Jason’s Law” could have made a difference. It is a shame, that all these truckers are dying, and congress is picking their noses..this should be a no questions act and should pass with ease.
