Two more victims were positively identified Wednesday in a collision between a FedEx truck and bus carrying local students to an orientation event at Humboldt State University in Northern California.

The victims of the April 10, 2014, crash in Orland, Calif., have been identified by family members and school administrators as students Ismael Jimenez, Denise Gomez, Jennifer Bonilla, Marisa Serrato and Adrian Castro, seen left to right in the top row. Colleagues and family members identified the adults killed in the crash as, left to right in the bottom row, Mattison Maywood, Michael Myvett, Arthur Arzola, Tim Evans and Talalelei Lealao-Taiao. They are shown in photos posted to social media or provided by friends, employers or family.

The Glenn County Coroner’s Office released the names of students Denise Eraina Gomez and Jennifer Caroline Bonilla in a news release.

Gomez, of Inglewood, attended Animo Charter High School. She was 18.

Bonilla, 17, was a senior at Dorsey High School in the Baldwin Hills area. “Jenny” was remembered Wednesday at a vigil at her high school attended by more than 300 people.

Friends said Bonilla was a serious student but always had a smile on her face. She wanted to be a social worker and help children.

Vigils were also held Wednesday for Marisa Serrato, 17, and 26-year-old Arthur Arzola.

Serrato attended Norte Vista High School in Riverside. Her identical twin sister Marisol was also traveling to Humboldt, but the teenagers were riding on different buses.

“College was the future for both of us,” Marisol Serrato said. “I feel like my sister would want me to move forward and fulfill both of our dreams.”

Arzola was an admissions representative in the Los Angeles area for the university. He was a chaperone on the bus.

The 26-year-old was attending the University of La Verne and was set to graduate in May.

Ten people died in the fiery crash.

So far, six have been positively identified.
