Alcohol may have been involved in deadly two-fatality car crash

Margaret Avina and Nicholas Macias were killed and another female was injured after a fatal car accident on Buena Vista Street and Whittier Avenue in Hemet, according to an article from

Avina, 33, and Macias, 22, were both residents of Hemet who were killed in a single-vehicle collision at Buena Vista Street and Whittier Avenue.

Macias was reportedly speeding up to 100 miles per hour through the streets in Hemet before running a stop sign and hitting a Dodge truck.  As mentioned in the article, the two occupants inside the truck survived.

Authorities responded to the fatal car collision and found the Volkswagen crashed into a tree just west of the intersection.  Coroners pronounced the two victims dead at the scene shortly after.

Additionally, the man and female passenger inside his truck were taken to the local hospital by paramedics, and statements show that the injured female passenger was expected to recover from her injuries.

Authorities suspect that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash and that the driver of the Dodge truck may have been impaired as well.

Currently, the traffic collision is being investigated by the authorities, and further information will be relayed at a later time.
