    The Latest on a car plummeting from the Coronado Bridge onto a park, leaving 4 dead and at least 4 critically injured.

    A pickup truck plunged off the San Diego-Coronado Bridge and plowed into a crowd gathered at a park below, leaving four people dead and at least eight injured.
    Witnesses say the truck landed on a vendor tent set up for a motorcycle festival at Chicano Park Saturday afternoon.
    One article says the people in the park (about 100) were there to celebrate the La Raza Run motorcycle festival.

    It may just be my (mis)perception, but it so often seems that the impaired drivers in these kinds of incidents somehow manage to survive, while the sober, innocent bystanders are maimed or killed.

    Texan arrested after truck plunged from San Diego bridge into packed park, killing 4

    Authorities identified the driver as Richard Anthony Sepolio, 25, who was stationed at the naval base on Coronado Island across the bay from San Diego. His rank or job description was not immediately available. The truck he was driving is registered to an address in Hamilton, Texas.
    The California Highway Patrol identified the deceased as a 62-year-old man and 50-year-old woman from Chandler, Ariz., and a 59-year-old man and 49-year-old woman from Hacienda Heights, a suburb east of Los Angeles. Authorities did not immediately release their names.

    I'm happy he survived to face charges.

    Local rumor says he was pulled from the truck with cell phone in hand.

    I know this sounds harsh, but if he was going to launch off Coronado, couldn't he have waited until he was over the bay? That's a big ass bridge, just horrible luck he hit where he did

    Richard Anthony Sepolio, is alive, police said, but critically injured. He was hospitalized and arrested on suspicion of DUI, Sanchez said. He has been charged with vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI causing injury or death and other charges related to significant injury of others.

    was in shock within seconds of the crash and asked witnesses who rushed to his aid to please contact his commander at a nearby military base.

    Couple crushed by truck at Chicano Park mentored troubled kids

    Arizona couple who had been married for over 35 years

    couple, who 'spent their free time enjoying the brotherhood and serenity of the open road on their motorcycle,' were dedicated to helping young people in their community.
    “Together, they spent many years providing a loving home for many of Arizona’s foster children,” according to the page.
    Cruz was also a mentor to troubled teens and AnnaMarie was a teaching assistant at an elementary school.

    On-duty Navy serviceman

    Oh brother

    People attending the festival were able to get the badly damaged truck upright,


    crash caused so much chaos that both the Coronado and Harbor police departments were called in to help.

    "It was like a movie. It was like in slow motion," Dameron said. "Where it hit, there was dust and debris and instant chaos and panic. People running crazy."

    Sepolio suffered major trauma

    Was he texting or was he talking?

    And yes, I remember people talking about driving while texting laws at least 10 years ago! Reckless driving is illegal and people get ticketed for putting on make up. So what's the hold up?
