Salvador Tamayo, 39, probably saw the whole thing. A 2008 Honda Civic, travelling ahead of him, clipped a big rig, spun out, hit the center divider, and ended up facing sideways in the fast line. The disabled Civic's right side was facing oncoming traffic, and more specifically, Tamayo's 2003 Ford F-250, reports the Pasadena Star News.
The speed of Tamayo's pickup truck pushed the Civic 200 feet before the cars came to a rest. The truck ended up on top of the sedan. The two occupants of the sedan, Jorge A. Perez, 34, and Beatriz Castillo, 31, were pronounced dead on the scene. Tamayo only suffered minor injuries.
