Ramapo Police Officer Adopts Hi-Tor Rescue Puppy Named for New City Crash Victim

A fundraiser was held last night at the Dog House in Nanuet for Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the Hi-Tor Animal Shelter. A Ramapo police officer adopted a rescue dog that was named in honor of Jayde Marks, the 21 year-old New City woman who was killed last month, allegedly by a drunk driver who was also a friend of hers. Pete Martinez is the president of a Jeep club called Xtreme4Low, a community group that raises funds for various organizations…

Marks was driving on Germonds Road in Clarkstown when 22 year-old Michael Mercado of West Haverstraw allegedly went through a red light at the intersection of 304, crashing into Marks’ car, killing her. Mercado is charged with second-degree vehicular manslaughter, DWI and other charges.
