Dinuba High School students are struggling with the loss of two of their classmates, killed in a suspected DUI crash.

Twins, Amy and Linda Guiba, died Saturday night. The twin's brother, Anthony Guiba and his girlfriend also died in the crash. Another brother, Gilbert Guiba, survived the crash but is in the hospital.

Amy and Linda were 10th graders at Dinuba High and were very involved in school activities. School Principal Chris Meyer says the girls touched many lives and were known for being kind to others.

Monday, counselors were at the school to help students and staff members cope with the loss.

"I just think sadness. Why them? Because they were just wonderful kids. They really were gems and they're just innocent victims," said Chris Meyer, Dinuba High School Principal.

The fatal crash happened Saturday night, south of Selma. Investigators say 24-year-old Steven Perez was drunk when he ran a stop sign and hit the car the girls were riding in with their two brothers and a friend.
