According to officials with the California Highway Patrol, Jonathan Rivera, 29, was traveling in a gray Honda Civic when he crashed into the back of a stopped 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV occupied by four people. Firefighters and EMTs arrived at the scene where two back seat passengers in the Atlas, now identified as 91-year-old Francisca Solis, of Anaheim, and 70-year-old Trinidad Solis, of Selma, were transported to UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange. Both individuals succumbed to their injuries a short time later.
