Carpinteria Siblings Die in Rollover Crash

The driver of the vehicle loses control on Pacific Coast Highway near Oxnard

A Carpinteria brother and sister died Wednesday afternoon in a rollover crash on Pacific Coast Highway near Oxnard.

Anthony Borrello, 24, was driving a Hummer northbound near Hueneme Road about 3 p.m. when he over-corrected after drifting onto the right shoulder, according to the California Highway Patrol. He lost control of the vehicle, crossing both lanes of traffic and rolling several times.

Passenger Cecilia Anna Guzman, 22, was ejected and suffered major injuries. She was rushed to Saint John’s Medical Center, where she later died. Her brother, Luis Guzman, 27, of Carpinteria, also was ejected and was pronounced dead at the scene. The CHP believes that neither was wearing a seat belt.

Two other passengers — Peter Aguilar, 26, of Carpinteria, Pedro Ramirez, 24, of Oxnard — were not seriously injured in the crash.

The CHP says drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
