Laton park bench dedicated to fatal crash victims

FRESNO, Calif.

/*Jessica Lopez*/ and /*Leslie Alvarez*/ died last April -- after a car crash near the UC Merced campus. Both girls were from the Laton/Riverdale area, and were heading home to celebrate Easter.

Saturday, a park bench was dedicated in a Laton park -- where Alvarez grew up.

In the picture, these are members of her family, sitting on the bench dedicated to both of the girls.
