The Stanislaus County Coroner’s Office has recognized the two 19-year-old Turlock men who died in a DUI crash in Ceres Saturday night as residents of Turlock.
There are two young men being sought by police who apparently became lost while travelling east on West Whitmore Avenue around 8 p.m.
DB: A Ford F350 pickup truck was travelling south at a red light when it hit the 2008 Nissan Altima as it crossed Crows Landing Road. According to police, the incidents ended in death for both victims.
Ceres police have arrested 28-year old Danielle Morgan of Fair Oaks in connection with the crash. Authorities believe that she may be impaired and should not drive.
Morgan faces preliminary felony DUI and murder charges. She is being held in the Stanislaus County jail with no bail, but she’ll soon have a chance to make her story heard before an awaiting judge.
Efforts to raise funds for funeral expenses have been made by the families of Reinoso and Gomez through GoFundMe pages.
Gomez’s GoFundMe is called “Yahir Ulises Gomez Valladar funeral,” while Reinoso’s is called “Favian’s funeral expensive.”
In writing on the page they created, the Gomez parents said, “We have our hearts broken, and have no words to express the pain we are going through.”
It is still early in the investigation, according to Ceres police. Officer Freddie Ortiz can be reached at 209-538-5678 if you have any information.
