Rufina Rodriguez, Eloina Arango, Petra Arango Fatally Injured in Oceanside Crash; Mason Fish Arrested

 
OCEANSIDE, CA (February 10, 2019) – A grandmother and her two daughters died in an Oceanside DUI crash that also injured three more of their family members.
 
According to the Oceanside Police Department, the accident occurred shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday, February 5, at the intersection of Oceanside Boulevard and South Coast Highway.
 
74-years-old Rufina Arango Rodriguez, of Fallbrook, 40-year-old Petra Arango, of Oceanside, and 56-year-old Eloina Arango of Mexico were traveling in their Mazda sedan through the intersection eastbound on Oceanside Boulevard when their vehicle was broadsided by a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, police stated.
 
Petra Arango was rushed to Tri-City Medical Center after being ejected from the vehicle during the crash; despite life-saving efforts, she succumbed to her injuries. Rodriguez and Eloina Arango were pronounced dead at the scene.
 
The remaining three passengers in the Mazda, Petra’s 13-year-old daughter was ejected, 82-year-old Aquilino Arango Ojeda from Fallbrook and 43-year-old Rey David Velasco Herrera of Oceanside – wound up trapped in the wreckage and were extricated by firefighters. They were brought to medical centers for treatments of moderately serious injuries.
 
Police later found out that the truck driven by 19-year-old Mason Fish ran a red light at the intersection of the two roads and that the sedan had a green light.
 
Fish was examined by medics at the scene and released. He was then evaluated by officers and later arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. According to the deputy district attorney, investigators found cocaine in Fish’s wallet.
 
The suspect was booked into county jail in Vista on three counts each of gross vehicular manslaughter and DUI resulting in bodily injury, along with a misdemeanor count of possession of controlled substance. Bail was set at $800,000.
 
It appeared that none of the family members were wearing seat belts when the accident occurred, according to Sgt. Rick Davis.
 
A GoFundMe page was created to help the family with funeral and medical expenses.
