By Michelle Casady - Express-News
A man who died one week ago in a traffic accident while chasing after his common-law wife was identified by the medical examiner Tuesday as Louis Celestino, 55.
According to a police report, the woman told authorities Celestino had been arguing with her and following her as she walked south on South Presa Street near Fair Avenue so she flagged down a passing pickup driven by a friend and hopped into the bed to get away.
The woman told police Celestino ran after the pickup and grabbed onto the tailgate in an attempt to jump in but slipped and landed face down on the road and died there.
