Head-on Highway 180 crash victims ID'd
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Action News has learned the names of the three victims in Wednesday's deadly crash on Highway 180.
The coroner's office says 37-year-old Felicito Escalante and 45-year-old Maria Castorena were killed when their Ford Escort crossed over into the opposite lanes of Highway 180 and slammed into a truck.
That truck was being driven by 49-year-old Maria Mendoza. She was also killed in the crash. The truck's passenger, Jose Perez, was the sole survivor of the crash. At last check, he remains in serious condition at Community Regional Medical Center.
The highway patrol has not yet determined a cause of the crash, but they say alcohol may have played a roll since investigators found beer bottles in and around the Ford Escort.
