Chula Vista

Two 24-year-old Mexicans living and working in San Diego County died early Sunday when their car veered off Interstate 805 in Chula Vista and struck a disabled car on the shoulder, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol reported.

The men, identified by the county coroner's office as Francisco Garcia-Curiel of San Ysidro and Sergio Cabrera-Valdiva of Chula Vista, were found dead at the scene of the accident, which the CHP said occurred at about 5:45 a.m. in the northbound lane just north of Main Street.

The disabled car, which the CHP said was parked legally, was empty. Deputy Coroner Charles Kelley said Garcia-Curiel was an employee of Home Federal Savings Bank, and Cabrera-Valdiva was an ironworker.
