Fellow students, friends and advocates for those with special needs took to the streets in Orange Saturday to demand answers in the death of a 15-year-old student with special needs who died in an on-campus golf cart accident at El Modena High School this week.

Manny Perez was killed Monday in a golf cart crash, authorities said.

His family said Perez had autism and was not properly supervised. They announced plans to file a lawsuit against the school district on Thursday. Fellow students held a walkout at the campus the same day.
