RENO, Nev. (AP) - The names of five Southern California family members killed in a southern Nevada traffic crash have been released.
The Clark County coroner's office identified them Sunday as 41-year-old Genaro Fernandez of Norwalk, Calif.; 49-year-old Raudel Fernandez-Avila and 53-year-old Belen Fernandez, both of Lynwood, Calif.; and 13-year-old Angela Sandoval and 45-year-old Leonardo Fernandez-Avila, both of Los Angeles.
Coroner's spokeswoman Jennifer Demers says their exact relationships were not immediately known.
The Nevada Highway Patrol says the victims were with two other family members in a van that was struck behind by an SUV early Saturday on Interstate 15 some 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
Trooper Loy Hixson says the two others are at a Las Vegas hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
SUV driver Jean Soriano of California was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
