Martha Martinez-Rojas and YulenyElizabeth Castrejon Diaz were pinned inside their Honda Civic.

The two were removed from the wreckage and were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Civic was heading westbound on McCombs when it was struck by a tractor-trailer hauling a set of bottom dump trailers traveling south on Highway 43. No one was injured in the truck.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the truck slammed into the Honda. The incident remains under an active investigation.
