Women killed in Highway 1 crash identified

Two women who died after the car they were in collided with a truck on state Highway 1 near Pescadero on Saturday afternoon have been identified as 22-year-old Audrey Jimenez and 22-year-old Madeline Halluin, according to the San Mateo County coroner’s office.

Jimenez, a San Jose resident, and Halluin, a Campbell resident, were both pronounced dead at the scene following the collision, California Highway Patrol officials said.

The collision was reported around 4 p.m. on Highway 1 at Pigeon Point Road in unincorporated San Mateo County, according to the CHP.

A Dodge pickup truck was traveling south on Highway 1 when a Mazda CX-5, occupied by Halluin and Jimenez, tried to pull out onto the highway from Pigeon Point Road. The Mazda, however, came right into the path of the Dodge and the two vehicles collided, CHP officials said.

No one inside the Dodge was injured, according to the CHP.

Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash, CHP officials said.
