According to the brother of Sayquan, the Honda car driven by Divante had an old defective windshield that would fog up easily. He said that when the heat was up inside the car the old windshield would fog up so badly that only Sayquan was able to drive the car.

Before the accident, Sayquan and Divante went dancing at a Club in Queens. Sayquan was a construction worker. He left behind 3 children, a one week-old son, a one-year old son and a 7 year-old girl. His family was devastated.
