Mason Fish Arrested, Three Killed in DUI Accident in Oceanside

 
OCEANSIDE, CA (February 6, 2019) – A 19-year-old man drove a pickup truck into a passenger car at an intersection in Oceanside, killing three women and injuring three other people.
 
Mason Fish, 19, appeared in court for an arraignment. Fish was booked into jail on three counts of gross vehicular manslaughter and DUI resulting in bodily injury. Bail was set at $800,000.
 
Petra Arango, 40, of Oceanside; Rufina Rodriguez, 74, of Fallbrook; and 56-year-old Eloina Arango, of Mexico, were identified as the victims in Tuesday’s horrific crash, according to San Diego County’s medical examiner and Oceanside Police.
 
The crash happened just after 1 p.m. Tuesday when the Toyota Tacoma traveling south on South Coast Highway failed to stop at a red light and collided with the family’s Mazda at Oceanside Blvd., police said.
 
A 13-year-old girl, who neighbors and friends call Kelly, was ejected from the vehicle and seriously injured. Police said Aquilino Arango Ojeda, 82, of Fallbrook; and 43-year-old Rey David Velasco Herrera, of Oceanside, were in the front seats of the vehicle and also seriously injured.
 
Kelly and Arango Ojeda were released from the hospital Wednesday, police said.
