SAN DIEGO - One of the people killed during crashes due to Friday night's storm has been confirmed as a University of California, San Diego student, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.
Mabel Bahena, 19, was a passenger in the Volkswagen Jetta car that crashed on Interstate 15 near the University Avenue exit around 5:30 p.m.
Family members told FOX 5 they were told the wind force is what pushed the car off the freeway, forcing it to collide with a truck that was parked on the shoulder.
Bahena was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was taken to the hospital while the owner of the truck suffered minor injuries.
The freshmen was studying engineering at UCSD.
