Man and woman killed in multi-vehicle crash on Highway 41 identified

The two people killed in a multi-car crash on Highway 41 on Friday have been identified as 57-year-old Rasalva Chavez-Contreras and 52-year-old Salvador Llamas.

The crash took place at about 5:10 pm in the area of Highway 41 and Mount Whitney Ave.

Authorities say a driver did not notice that the vehicles in front of him had stopped, and crashed into the victims' car.

Their car rear-ended the stopped car in front of them, and the driver and passenger were killed in the crash.

Chavez-Contreras was pronounced dead at the scene and Llamas was taken to CRMC, where he died from his injuries.

Both lanes of the highway in the area were closed down for at least an hour.
