A GMC Sierra truck was driving fast down Park Street when it clipped a minivan and flipped several times.

Seven people were in the truck at the time of the accident. Two others were killed, 17-year-old Briana Ortega and 17-year-old Simon Sotelo. Garcia and four other occupants of the truck were hospitalized with critical injuries.

Garcia’s aunt tells KRON4 that Valdez owned the truck involved in the crash. She says he was not driving at the time. Instead, a friend was at the wheel.
