The families of two men killed in a motorcycle accident Monday night met each other to share their grief.

The families of two men killed in a motorcycle accident Monday night shared their grief less than 24 hours after the tragic deaths.

Jesse Arnold was driving his motorcycle at a high rate of speed Monday night when he collided with 29-year-old Shawn Christopher Arballo, who was walking his dog in near Carmel Mountain Road and Sundance Road.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene, according to the county's medical examiner.

Arnold, 26, was described by officials as a U.S. Army soldier from San Diego. Officials said he was traveling at over 100 MPH just before the collision at 9:30 p.m. Monday.

Reached by NBC 7 San Diego on Tuesday, Arballo's father, Tony, said he is heartbroken by the loss of his son.

"There's a lot of crying, but at the same time, there's a lot of laughter," Tony said. "He was a happy guy and very caring. He would always help other people."

Even through Tony's pain though, he said he feels no anger toward Jesse Arnold.

Arnold's father told NBC 7 San Diego that his son was kind and proud of his service, having spent a year in Afghanistan. He was willing to go again if needed, his father said.

"I just feel so very bad for the other family who lost their son in this terrible accident," he said.

Neighbors said drivers commonly speed on the road where the accident occurred, which has a long straight stretch of road on the south side of State Route 56.
