The CHP reported that a Toyota Camry, driven by Silva, was traveling eastbound on CA-32 around 5:00 p.m. when a Ford Fusion, driven by 24-year-old Ramon Barrera Jr., was traveling westbound and speeding in and out of traffic.
The CHP states that Barrera was merging with “insufficient room” for other motorists and Silva was unable to avoid the crash. Silva was pronounced dead at the scene while his two passengers and children, Isabella and Ian Silva were transported to a hospital with major injuries.
