Chandler residents Cruz and Annamarie Contreras were among the 4 pedestrians killed (plus more injured) in a park  when a pickup driver lost control and crashed in San Diego / Coronado.

The driver was also injured and arrested for DUI causing death/injury.

“Richard Sepolio, an active-duty Navy sailor stationed in Coronado. Sepolio has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs causing injury or death, California Highway Patrol Officer Jake Sanchez said…” yet the bright lights at the insist on saying “…4 Killed in San Diego-Coronado Bridge Accident”.  See, e.g. AP stylebook: “When negligence is claimed or proven in a crash avoid ‘accident’, which can be read by some as a term exonerating the person responsible.”


The victims were among several thousand people were gathered in the Barrio Logan park for the La Raza Run; a motorcycle event.
