The Kern County Coroner’s Office has identified the two women killed in a crash on Old River Road Monday afternoon as a mother and her 20-year-old daughter.
The coroner’s office said the women are Maria Mosqueda and her daughter, Itzel.
According to the CHP, their car slammed into a Lexus that was trying to pass a big rig, south of Bear Mountain Boulevard.
Family members say Itzel studied at Bakersfield College, majoring in criminal justice.
A GoFundMe account was started to raise money to send both women back to Mexico for burial.
