Creighton University freshman Salvador “Chava” Valdovinos was so responsible, so enthusiastic and so ready to work, that when he didn't show up for his work study job at 9 a.m. Monday, his boss knew something was wrong.
Maureen Beat soon learned the horrible news. Valdovinos, 18, had been killed in a car crash that morning on Interstate 29, as he returned to Omaha from his home in South Sioux City, Neb.
