The police still don’t know what happened, “it’s a very complex scene,” said Lodi Officer Eric Bradley. Five vehicles were involved in this deadly crash. Witnesses say the crash was caused when the driver of a SUV was talking on his cell phone while speeding through an intersection. He then crashed into the Miranda family’s vehicle, killing six family members in that car.
