Marlee Maldonado, 8, Ashley Gilroy, 33, their dog, and Paul Larios, 35, killed when speeding SUV causes explosive crash at Riverside Avenue and Valley Boulevard in Rialto, California
Rialto police say a driver speeding on Valley Boulevard slammed into another driver who was stopped at the intersection. The collision triggered a domino effect of crashes.
The driver of the Cherokee was killed at the scene, in addition to the mother and daughter in the Kia. Two additional drivers were rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Monday evening around 6:30 p.m., Gilroy and Marlee and their dog Phoebe were heading home to Highland after spending the day with Gilroy's oldest sister who still lives in their childhood home in Rialto.
An emotional vigil was held in Rialto Wednesday to remember a mother and her young daughter who were tragically killed in a fiery car crash earlier this week.
