Carlos Rios  has been identified by authorities as the deceased in a collision that occurred on January 25 in San Leandro. Mr. Rios was driving a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck on Merced Street shortly before 6:30 a.m. when it reportedly crossed into opposing traffic, where it collided with a Ford Escort. Mr. Rios was apparently thrown from his truck and may have made contact with the Escort, before landing. He perished at the scene. The driver of the Escort, a woman, was taken to an area hospital. Mr. Rios, an Oakland resident, was 36.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the deceased during this difficult time.
