SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The names of two San Diego women who were killed in an early morning collision in the San Carlos district Friday were released by the Medical Examiner's Office Sunday.
Clarina Rabe Chu, 88, was traveling eastbound on Navajo Road in a Toyota Prius when she ran a red light at Park Ridge Boulevard and collided with a Toyota Camry being driven by 76-year-old Marjorie Bialk, according to the medical examiner.
