Ron Ferro, the father of 17-year-old Carly Ferro, remains hospitalized after the Wednesday night car crash that took the life of his daughter, according to his employee Lori Turner.
Turner, from Ron’s Over Easy’s Restaurant in Cuttingsville this morning, said Ron Ferro underwent an MRI exam Thursday, but is expected to be released before his daughter’s memorial, which is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday.
Ron will likely be in a neck brace for the next two to three weeks, Turner said.
A police report reported Ron as having suffered a concussion in the crash, when his car was hit by 23-year-old Alex Spanos, who was driving a Toyota Camry with the license plate “A-Team.”
According to police, Spanos sped down Cleveland Avenue at an estimated 80 mph after huffing a chemical to get high, lost control of the car and hit Ferro’s parked car.
At the time, Carly was walking to her father’s car in an attempt to get in the passenger seat when she was thrown against the store’s wall by the impact of the crash.
She died in the hospital as a result of her injuries about two hours later.
Spanos attempted to leave the scene after the crash, according to a witness statement in the police report.
