RENO, Nev. (AP) -- The names of five Southern California family members killed in a southern Nevada traffic crash have been released.

The Clark County coroner's office identified them Sunday as 41-year-old Genaro Fernandez of Norwalk, Calif.; 49-year-old Raudel Fernandez-Avila and 53-year-old Belen Fernandez, both of Lynwood, Calif.; and 13-year-old Angela Sandoval and 45-year-old Leonardo Fernandez-Avila, both of Los Angeles.

Coroner's spokeswoman Jennifer Demers says their relationships were not immediately known.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says the victims were with two other family members in a van that was struck by an SUV Saturday on Interstate 15, some 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

Trooper Loy Hixson says the others are hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

SUV driver Jean Soriano of California was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
