A passenger killed when the pickup truck in which she was a passenger rolled off an Oceanside freeway connector ramp in the rain this weekend was publicly identified Monday as a 22-year-old Descanso woman.
Mireyya Hernandez died at the scene following the crash on transition from northbound Interstate 5 to eastbound state Route 78 around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, according to Oceanside fire officials and the county Medical Examiner’s Office.
The driver and another passenger were trapped in the wreckage of the full-size truck, which had rolled down an embankment and landed upside down near the Buena Vista Lagoon. Both were freed by fire crews and taken to a hospital to be treated, authorities said.
