Authorities then identified the victims on February 10 as Mary Jane Becerra Corral and Adolfo Corral,
They were both 44, and resided in Goleta.
Mary Jane Becerra Corral worked as a computer specialist for the Goleta Union School District.
Adolfo Corral served as the equity, diversity, and cultural competency coordinator at Santa Barbara City College.
Their passing jumpstarted a GoFundMe account to benefit the Corrals’ family.
Moreover, authorities arrested the suspected hit-and-run driver at around 8:45 p.m. in Carpinteria.
39-year-old Eric Mauricio Ramirez Aguilar of Goleta was found in the passenger seat of a car that deputies stopped at around 8:30 p.m.
