Funeral services will be held Monday for two California Highway Patrol officers killed in a crash near Fresno.

Officers Juan Gonzalez and Brian Law will be honored at a ceremony at the Save Mart Center in Fresno.

Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to attend.

Both officers worked for Bay Area CHP offices before transferring.

They were responding to an accident in southern Fresno County when they veered off the road. Their car flipped over, killing both officers.

CHP officials say it appears the officers swerved to avoid a pedestrian involved in the initial crash.

The incident is under investigation.
