Samuel Rojas and William Harrison have been identified by authorities as the deceased victims following an automotive collision that occurred on September 6 in Modesto. Bernabe Guillen Jr. , 32, was driving a 2013 Toyota Scion west on Maze Boulevard (Highway 132) prior to 3:00 a.m. when, according to the California Highway Patrol, he drifted into the side of the opposing lane where a 1989 Honda was being driven by Mr. Rojas, 60. The cars sideswiped each other reportedly causing Mr. Rojas to lose control of his vehicle. The Honda then veered into and out of opposing lines and collided with a 2005 Kia driven by Mr. Harrison, 75, which ended up in a field adjacent to the road. The Honda was reportedly severed into two parts by the force of the collision. Mr. Harrison, who reports say may not have been wearing a seatbelt, and Mr. Rojas both sadly died at the scene. Mr. Guillen was able to pull over and was, reports indicate, uninjured. All three men involved in the crash were Modesto residents. The CHP says that it does not suspect a DUI but an investigation into the tragic mishap continues.
