In one vehicle was 21-year-old Jasmine Jones and 23-year-old Kiara Barker. Jones was pronounced dead at the hospital following the accident. Barker reportedly died at the scene of the crash.

Officials confirmed 31-year-old Susana Longoria to have died in the accident. Longoria was reportedly on her way home when the accident occurred.
