The five men were identified as 20-year-old Javier Hernandez of Lemoore, 43-year-old Miguel Tijerina and 32-year-old Marcelino Ramirez of Clovis, 28-year-old John Carlin from the Fresno area, and 48-year-old Kerman resident Ramandeep Sran.
According to Mike Salas, the CHP officer who responded to the scene, none of those involved in the accident was wearing a seatbelt. The two survivors were both taken to Community Regional Hospital, where they were treated and admitted to the level 3 trauma center, according to a local FOX affiliate KMPH.
According to a CHP collision report obtained by CNN, investigators believe the Hyundai and the Honda were being driven by a 20-year-old man and a 42-year-old man, respectively.
According to the report, the driver of the Hyundai “allowed his vehicle to steer to the left, crossing over the center double yellow lines for reasons yet to be determined.”
