CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- Two sisters were killed early Friday in a crash on rain-slicked Interstate 805 in Chula Vista.

Both victims had been in a 2002 Ford Ranger that crashed in the southbound lanes, south of state Route 54.

The sisters got out of the pickup, which was blocking traffic lanes, and were hit by an oncoming 2009 Dodge Caliber driven by a 44-year-old woman, CHP officers said.

The women were identified as 27-year-old Monica Moreno and her 20-year-old sister Veronica Moreno. Both were residents of Chula Vista.

The crash was reported shortly after 1:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash left the southbound lanes blocked in the area, and the connector ramp from eastbound state Route 54 to southbound I-805 closed, according to Caltrans and the CHP. A SigAlert was issued, but the lanes were cleared and the alert lifted shortly after 5 a.m.

    One of those girls you are referring to is a veteran, I was in the Air Force with her, she was an upstanding Airman and person. It’s sad that you would be so apathetic to their friends and family to refer to them in such a way.

      You have no idea what you’re talking about. These wonderful women were died tragically. They weren’t wet backs and the youngest daughter was a veteran regardless of the branch. What have you done for your country? Have some humanity in you I’ve came back recently from visiting their mother and she’s devastated.

    Remember they had just been in an accident when they got out of the car. Stunned maybe? Regardless of the circumstances, leave racism out of it, have some empathy for a moment and try to imagine what the parents are going through right now. . . . .not one child, but two.

    So deeply sorry for this family with the loss of two young adult sisters. My beloved daughter (was 25) died almost in this same manner just over 3 years ago. Lost control of her car, rolled it and was a sitting duck in the fast lane in her car that she was trapped in. A drunk plowed her down without braking or swerving and then the drunk proceeded to plow down a good Samaritan. My heart goes out to the family and friends of these two young women whos lives were brief.
