Tragedy just days after graduation for a Charles County man.

Police say 24-year-old Luis Alexander Daboin and two of his friends were killed in a high-speed crash early this morning on Route 925 north of Route 5 in Charles County.

“My whole life went down when they told me my son died,” said Luis Raymon Daboin.

Daboin was beside himself with grief. Just Thursday, he was celebrating his son’s GED graduation. On Saturday Daboin was supposed to join the military.

The elder Daboin planned a celebration at home for his son and his friends.

“I made a barbecue, I said ‘you can celebrate your graduation here with your friends.’ They never came back,” said Daboin.

Luis’ half-brother, Lawrence Fowler initially thought the young men had returned home in the early morning hours.

“He told me, ‘Luis the kids are here because I saw a lot of cars outside.’ I said good. When I opened the door it was two Maryland State Troopers,” said Daboin.

Luis was riding in the front seat of his friend’s car and another friend was in the back. According to Maryland State Troopers, the driver ran a red light in front of a trooper. When the trooper tried to pull over the car, the driver sped off, going as fast as 100 miles per hour. The driver hit a median and went airborne hitting a tree, killing all three men, including Luis Alexander.

Troopers believe speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.
