Message from Natalia’s Family sent to Edgar Diaz, the Man Responsible for the Hit and Run


Natalia, who turns three next week, was struck by a truck Tuesday night, May 1, 2018, at the corner of Montmorenci Street and Massasoit Street.  The accident happened around 7:00 pm.

The truck was driven by 32-year-old Edgar Diaz of Springfield.  Diaz originally ran on foot from the accident.  He was caught a little farther down the street and held there until the police arrived.  Diaz was found to not have a valid driver’s license.

Natalia and her mother were crossing the street when Diaz was speeding down the street and flew through a stop sign.  When he ran the stop sign, he hit Natalia knocking her down, then proceeded to run over her leg.  Caren, Natalia’s mother, drove Natalia to the hospital after the accident.

Natalia suffered a broken femur and currently has a full-leg cast on her leg.   Natalia lost her dad, Jose Luis Diaz, in September in a car crash in Grafton.  Ivanska Almodovar, Jose Luis Diaz’s mom, had a message for the driver of the truck that struck her granddaughter, Natalia.  She made the statement, “I don’t feel nothing. God is the only one who’s gonna judge him. She’s good and I thank God she’s okay.”

Edgar Diaz has been charged in the hit-and-run accident involving 3-year-old Natalia.
