Young actor meets untimely death in vehicular accident

Young actor AJ Perez died early morning of Sunday, April 17 after sustaining multiple head injuries when the vehicle he was riding met an accident in Tarlac highway.

Perez, an ABS-CBN “Kapamilya” talent, was rushed to a hospital in Tarlac but didn’t make it.

The 18-year old budding actor was on his way to Manila from a show in Dagupan, Pangasinan aboard an ABS-CBN van together with his father and four others. Initial police investigation showed that his van tried to overtake a trailer truck when it hit the coming Partas provincial bus along McArthur Highway in Barangay San Julian, Tarlac.

In a statement, ABS-CBN Corporate Communications Bong Osorio urges everyone to pray for the eternal repose of AJ’s soul and for the family and loved ones he left behind.

The untimely death of Perez was a big shock to the public, more so to his family and close friends in and out of show business. The late Perez has done various commercials and has appeared on “ASAP,” “Abt Ur Luv,” “Lobo,” “Ang Tanging Pamilya,” among others. The Star Magic talent has been tapped to become one of the leading men in the TV series, “Sabel.”

The late actor’s family has decided to open the wake to everyone, especially to his fans. Public viewing starts at 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 12 midnight on Monday April 19 at LaSalle Greenhills chapel in San Juan.
