The CHP is searching for the driver of an unknown vehicle accused of striking one of the crash victims before fleeing the scene.

"We're just asking all drivers to slow down. The traffic is picking up, obviously from COVID and all the restrictions that we had. The traffic earlier in the year was very light," said CHP Officer Greg Makel. "We've noticed speeds that have increased 90-100 miles per hour in some cases. We're actually enforcing a lot of that right now."

Anyone with information regarding the crash was asked to contact the CHP.
