Through the tears and pain, the family of Theresa Gutierrez is now planning a funeral for the youngest daughter of five.

The 28-year-old was killed Friday night when the car in which she was traveling was slammed into by a stolen car at the intersection of Northwest 135th Street and Northwest Seventh Avenue.

Her fiancé, Luis Tirado, is on life support.

“He’s in critical condition, in the ICU,” Robert San Martin, Gutierrez’s bother-in-law, said. “We don’t know if he’s going to make it.”

According to family members and a police source, there was a pursuit, but Miami-Dade police officers say they were not chasing the stolen Mercedes-Benz that ultimately blew through the red light at Northwest Seventh Avenue.
