The wreck was horrific according to the Coroner’s officials who reported that five people died resulting from a fiery California crash that split a car in half. The victims were teenage high school students, including two sisters.
Jim Amormino who is Orange County sheriff’s spokesperson said last Tuesday that the teens were Irvine Unified School District’s high school students.
Their identifications, the names of the three girls and two boys, were released a day after the wreck involving a single-car in Newport Beach.
The police identified as the driver Abdulrahman Alyahyan, age 17, who was a senior at University High School.
The passengers inside the car were identified as Robin Cabrera, age 17 & a senior at Irvine High School, and Aurora, age 16 & a sophomore at the same school. Other fatalities were Cecilia Zamora and Nozad Al Hamawendi, both age 17 and juniors at Irvine High School.
According to the Newport Beach Police, the car swerved off an Orange County street, struck a tree and divided into two pieces. Witnesses saw the Infiniti sedan ran off Jamboree Road at about 5:20 o’clock in the afternoon of Monday and crashed against a tree and split in half then catching fire. Four people were hurled from the car and died on the scene. The fifth was partly ejected and was rushed to the local hospital but was later declared dead.
Police considered speed as the main factor causing the accident.
Students at Irvine high school were reacting after they found out that four of the five teens killed in a one car accident in Newport Beach were fellow students. They were on their way to Huntington Beach.
Of the five friends, the driver, Abdul Alyahyan, was the only one attending the university high. He recently received a license but it was listed as a temporary one. With this provisional license, he is not allowed to drive with passengers under 20, until he has been driving for over a year or turned 18.
As investigation was ongoing, Huntington Beach investigators were likely to conclude that speed was definitely a factor.
One of their friends added that now he understands why her dad does not allow her to go driving with friends.
Authorities confirmed that the fiery crash took the lives of five young people that unbelievably split the car in half after it crashed into a tree.

With this provisional license, he is not allowed to drive with passengers under 20, until he has been driving for over a year or turned 18.
