Three Biloxians Die In Wreck

Three people from Biloxi, Mississippi, were killed when their truck crashed on Highway 101 in South San Jose. The California Highway Patrol has identified the victims as eight-year-old Andrew Nguyen, 65-year-old Ngon Nguyen, and the driver 39-year-old Al Duc Nguyen.

Authorities say the 1994 Toyota 4-Runner was in a slow lane when traffic suddenly slowed at a construction site. The driver swerved to avoid stopped traffic and the truck plunged down a 50-foot embankment and rolled several times.

A three-year-old boy identified as Matthew Nguyen suffered major injuries. His uncle, Du Nguyen, was treated at a hospital and released. Hong Nguyen suffered two broken legs and was in serious condition at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.

The wreck is under investigation.
