‘There was no Christmas’ says girlfriend of man, twin brother killed in crash

SE Mass

MATTAPOISETT, Mass. (WPRI) — Alberto and Rudy Morales, 33-year-old twin brothers from Pawtucket, were killed in a crash on a Massachusetts highway on Christmas Eve.

Rudy’s girlfriend Julia Andreozzi is still in shock after learning the twins were both killed in the crash.

“Unreal. There was no Christmas for us. It’s just been hard to process everything,” she said.

According to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office says the vehicle they were in, for reasons still under investigation, veered off of I-195 in Mattapoisett around 11 a.m. and crashed into trees.

No other vehicles were involved.

“They had gone into work to work a half-day for Christmas Eve in Cape Cod and they were on their way back from work,” Andreozzi explained.

Andreozzi says she has known the twins since they were kids. She and Rudy have an 8-year-old son together who doesn’t know what happened yet.

“He doesn’t, not yet. I don’t really know what I’m going to tell him,” she said

The two left lanes of the highway were closed for two hours as police investigated and crews cleaned up.

Andreozzi says her son and Rudy were supposed to spend the holiday together, but now she’s holding on to memories.

“Rudy and Alberto, they were amazing people, great friends, wonderful fathers,” she said. “They were musicians. They were happy. They were good people. Young, it’s just unreal.”

Dozens of people, family and friends, showed up at Jenks Park in Central Falls on Sunday night to remember the brothers.

Andreozzi says the family is now making funeral arrangements for the twins.

There is also a GoFundMe to help with those burial costs.
