A man killed in a collision in Stratford has been identified as Eustaquio Quirino, 22, of Santa Maria, the Kings County Coroner’s Office said Tuesday.
Quirino was a passenger in a 2000 Honda that collided with a utility truck on Highway 41.
About 5 p.m. Sunday, Victor Nava, 20, was driving north on Highway 41 near Main Street when he swerved into the southbound lane and collided with a utility truck, the CHP said. Quirino was the front seat passenger.
Alcohol appeared to be a factor in the collision, and Nava will be booked into jail when he is released from Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, the CHP said. Two other passengers in the car were also injured and taken to Community Regional.
The driver of the truck was not injured.
