CHULA VISTA, Calif. — A driver and passenger who died in a rollover crash in Chula Vista earlier this month have been identified.
Esmeralda Medina Villa, 27, and Joshua Ziolkowski, 22, were killed in the collision on Interstate 5 north of E Street around 3 a.m. on Nov. 11, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Medina Villa was driving northbound on I-5 when the 2006 BMW SUV went off the freeway, up an embankment and hit a utility pole before rolling back down and landing in the traffic lanes, the medical examiner’s office said.
Medina Villa and her passenger, Ziolkowski, were ejected from the vehicle. A Ford Mustang driving northbound on I-5 hit the BMW. Medina Villa and Ziolkowski were pronounced dead at the scene.
