NORCO, California — Mandalena Maytorena, 32, of Riverside and Cynthia Kay Barona, 38, of Corona were identified today as the two victims killed in a crash with a tractor-trailer truck that rolled over on the southbound Interstate 15 Freeway south of 2nd street early Wednesday morning, according to a Riverside County Sheriff Coroner press release.
About 2:16 a.m., driver Cynthia Barona, who also goes by the name of Cynthia Wright, was traveling south on the freeway in a red Cadillac with Maytorena sitting in the front passenger seat, according to the report and a news account of the incident.
According to a California Highway Patrol report on the incident the Cadillac crashed into the back of the truck and became wedged underneath it causing both vehicles to spin around and veer off the roadway into a ditch. CAL Fire Riverside fire fighters used the Jaws of Life to cut open the mangled Cadillac and release the trapped victims.
“This is a double tragedy for the families of these victims whose lives are forever changed,” said Attorney West Thomas, founder of the Thomas Law Firm.
