Two victims from the fatal head-on vehicle crash early Friday have been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.

Judy Guzman, 33, of Sacramento, and Brianna Rodriguez, 20, of Antelope, died when their 1992 Buick LeSabre ran head-on into another car at 1:30 a.m. and burst into flames on San Juan Avenue at Palm Avenue in Fair Oaks.

Of the five people traveling in the Buick, four people died, according to the California Highway Patrol. Three of the victims were burned to death, while one person died upon impact, said CHP spokesman Officer Chad Hertzell.

The driver of the other car, a 2003 Subaru Outback, survived and is in serious condition. He was identified as David Mazur, 26, of Citrus Heights. A toxicology test concluded that Mazur did not have alcohol in his system, Hertzell said. A separate test will be conducted on the driver of the Buick, who has not been identified.

Hertzell said an initial analysis suggested the crash, south of Madison Avenue, happened at normal speeds. It remains unclear which car drifted into the opposite lanes.

On Saturday, Hertzell said officials will be using fingerprints to identify the remaining survivor of the collision, a woman traveling in the Buick. She is receiving treatment at an area hospital.
