I-80 crash victims identified as family of Cal baseball player
The Contra Costa County coroner’s office has identified four people who died in a crash caused by an alleged drunk driver on Saturday night on westbound Interstate Highway 80 in San Pablo.
Daryl Horn, 50, and Joseph Horn, 14, both of Napa, and Troy Biddle, 52, and Baden Biddle, 12, both of Bainbridge Island in Washington, died in the crash reported at 8:11 p.m. Saturday on Highway 80 at the San Pablo Dam Road off-ramp.
Five vehicles were involved in the crash and the driver of the vehicle who allegedly caused it, 47-year-old Sacramento resident Fred Lowe, fled but was later arrested, California Highway Patrol officials said.
The victims who died were relatives of University of California at Berkeley baseball player Jared Horn, who was also in the car, school officials said Monday.
Jared Horn, a sophomore pitcher for Cal, has returned to his home in Napa after being treated for injuries at a hospital, according to the school.
Cal baseball head coach Mike Neu said in a statement:
“We cannot imagine what Jared is going through right now, and the thoughts and prayers of our entire Cal baseball community are with Jared and his family. … Jared is a respected and beloved member of our team as well as an incredible student-athlete, teammate and friend. We will give him any and all support that we can as he goes through this unthinkably difficult time.”
