Five Killed in California SUV Truck Accident

An SUV carrying six people crashed with a septic tank truck before both vehicles plunged into the Delta-Mendota Canal outside Westley, California on Tuesday. Five people are confirmed dead, and two are presumed to have died, though their bodies haven't been found. Police believe the missing bodies may have floated down the canal, have called off the search, and are waiting for them to float up.

According to witnesses, the SUV, carrying migrant workers, failed to stop at a stop sign and the septic truck was speeding. Both vehicles then smashed through a guardrail and plunged into the 20-foot deep canal.

Families of the deceased believe the police took too long to try to save those involved in the accident. However, police say it took 45 minutes for the dive team to get to the accident scene and the canal is known for its depth and the speed of the water, and any mistake could have ended in death for the dive team members.

According to Francis Mizuno of the San Luis Delta-Mendota Water Authority, there is an average of one accident a year at the canal.
