Funeral held for Mahopac crash victim

Friends and family said their final goodbyes Friday to a Mahopac man who was hit by a car while crossing the street over the weekend.

Police say Matt Demark, 21, was mowed down by 18-year-old Corey Edme, who fell asleep at the wheel on Route 6 early Sunday morning.

"He was my best friend, he was my teacher, my keeper and right now he's getting the love back that he gave to everybody," says friend Daniel Perez.

Demark was laid to rest in Mahopac. No charges have been filed against the driver of the car that hit Denmark.
