The two California Highway Patrol officers who died when their car careened into a guardrail Monday on the 99 Freeway south of Fresno were in their 30s and just six years out of the academy, the agency announced.
The investigation into what caused the crash remained ongoing, although more details began to emerge.
The CHP car then "lost control, collided into the guard rail," Paris added.
The roads were not slick from any rain and there was no fog at the time of the crash, Reyes said.
Reyes said crews were trying to open at least one lane, but that the rest of the closure would likely last several more hours.
