A man and a woman are dead after their vehicles collided Thursday morning on Interstate 5 just south of Lerdo Highway.
The crash happened just after 12:30 a.m.
Ryann O’Neal Mullen, 41, of Wasco, and Marc David Austin Guerreva, of Torrance, were both killed in the crash, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.
