Three passengers of the van were pronounced dead. Two of the victims were identified as Andres Alonzo-Canil, 41, and Miguel Alonzo-Lucas, 39.

More details please !! Are these illegals in the van? Who was the tree farmer hiring these workers?? Illegals tend to make more driver errors because they are not tested as good and do not have the experience of driving in the country.
