BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA (WKMG) – A family is fighting to keep a memorial built to remember a teenager who died in a car accident in place.
Zach Caufield’s grandparents stand where the teenager’s family placed a roadside cross at the scene of his accident.
On the night of Jan. 1, the 19-year-old drove off Hoffer Avenue crashing into the Melbourne Tillman Canal system.
His family believes the Heritage High School graduate failed to judge the turn in the road due to darkness and poor lighting and signage.
“He was just an all-around good kid. He had a hug for everybody,” Frank Caufield, Zach’s grandfather, said.
