Young Redwood City Brothers Killed in Crash Identified

The boys, ages 12 and 16, were among three killed in the crash on Highway 92 Sunday night.

Two young brothers from Redwood City who died Sunday night in a crash on state Highway 92 in Foster City have been identified as 12-year-old Erik Reynaga and 16-year-old Aldo Reynaga, according to the San Mateo County coroner's office.

The two Redwood City boys were among five people in a car heading east on Highway 92, when the driver lost control near Foster City Boulevard at about 9:45 p.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Art Montiel said.

The car hit a guardrail, overturned and crashed into a utility pole, Montiel said.

The driver, who was later identified as Juan Carlos Zaragoza Hernandez, 21, of San Mateo, was also killed in the crash.

Hernandez's cousin, 18-year-old Eduardo Zaragoza, was sitting in the front passenger seat at the time of the crash.

The San Mateo man was wearing his seatbelt and suffered minor injuries, Montiel said.

A fifth passenger, Erik and Aldo's older brother, Jesus Reynaga-Reyes, 18, was taken to Stanford Hospital with major injuries.

The crash remains under investigation by the CHP.
