Eugene Oh and Sebastien Gallegos have been identified by authorities as the deceased in a car vs. garbage truck collision that took place in Granada Hills on November 20. The teenagers were both inside a 17-year-old Acura on North San Fernando Road with one person when the vehicle collided with a garbage truck at roughly 1:40 p.m. All three occupants of the vehicle were taken for treatment but Mr. Gallegos, from Castaic, and Mr. Oh, a Valencia resident, tragically passed on from their injuries. The other individual is apparently expected to survive. No information on the driver of the sanitation vehicle has been provided.

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