According to the San Mateo County coroner’s office, two people who were killed in a grisly South San Francisco car crash on the night of June 10 have been identified as Fabiola Corona, 18, of San Francisco, and Gabriel Maldonado, 21, of Brisbane. They were passengers of a green 1994 Honda Civic, which was being driven at the time by Joshua Maldonado, 19, also of Brisbane.
Investigators believe the Honda was being driven at a very high rate of speed – between 80 and 90 mph in a 35 mph zone – down Airport Boulevard when it had a glancing collision with a Mazda and then proceeded to crash into a tree, roll over and then hit another tree, splitting the car in two. The two fatal victims were ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.
The driver was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries. After being treated, he was arrested on two counts of vehicular manslaughter. Officials noted that he exhibited signs of intoxication at the scene of the accident. He is scheduled to appear in San Mateo County Superior Court in Redwood City on the afternoon of June 14 to be arraigned.
