The police are still investigating a car accident that caused the death of two people and injured at least five people.
According to reports, a pick-up truck was going west on Highway 99 when, for yet unknown reasons, it suddenly crossed the center median. The vehicle then crashed into four eastbound vehicles and went airborne, leaving twisted metal and shattered glasses on the road.
The driver behind the suspect vehicle was identified as 54-year-old Charles Glaze. The two victims who died were later identified as Michael Brown and Linda Fuggiti. They are driving a silver Chevy crossover and Lexus respectively.
Glaze has not been charged in the crash. Deputies said that the suspect was not intoxicated when the collision took place. The investigation is ongoing.
