BRAWLEY — Two women suspected to be undocumented immigrants were killed in a van this morning north of here after the driver of the van pulled in front of a farm labor bus.
California Highway Patrol officers said the full-sized passenger van was heading east on Kalin Road when it pulled in front of a farm labor bus heading north on Highway 86 about 6 a.m. Officers were still at the scene this morning trying to determine if the van was crossing Highway 86 or turning onto the highway.
County Chief Deputy Coroner Sgt. Rick Macken said several of the van's occupants were ejected when the bus struck the rear of the van. Two women in the van were killed.
Macken said the women had not been identified as of this morning, but he was following a lead that may identify one of the women killed in the collision.
