of in St, of her sea a CHP IDs driver in SUV-train crash that killed six The Associated Press MODESTO Authorities on Wednesday identified the driver who got stuck in the path of an Amtrak train, but said it would take up to a week to confirm the identities of the five children also killed in the wreck. Maricruz Corral, 23, a young mother from Ceres, died Tuesday afternoon after stopping the compact sport utility vehicle she was driving on a set of tracks in Riverbank, about nine miles northeast of Modesto, said California Highway Patrol spokesman Tom Kulian. Corral's young passengers included two boys in car seats, another boy estimated to be between 6 and 8 years old and two teenage girls, Killian said. Her two sons were believed to have been in the vehicle. The other victims were thought to be members of another family.
