In an effort to clear up some confusion regarding the status of AJ. Cedillo, 18, the teen driver who died following an accident on Indian River Road Friday afternoon, Police have released the following information tonight:
Yale New Haven Hospital advised the Orange Police Department that AJ Cedillo was declared dead on Saturday evening.
His family was deciding on organ donation, which may have required limited life support while those very difficult choices are made.
Police anticipate that the remaining youths who are hospitalized will have a long road to recovery.
“We will not release their names,” said Asst. Chief Anthony Cuozzo. “We respect the family’s privacy during these difficult times.”
He added, “We will not be releasing any further information until the conclusion of the investigation.”
