A teenager was charged Sunday with driving under the influence in a Nevada accident that killed five members of a Southern California family.
A man, his teenage daughter and her aunt and two uncles -- were killed early Saturday in southeastern Nevada when the teen crashed into the back of their Chevy Astro van on Interstate 15, authorities said.
Jean Soriano, 18, was driving a Dodge Durango on I-15 about 30 miles south of Mesquite around 3 a.m. when he struck the back of the Astro, according to Loy Hixson of the Nevada Highway Patrol.
The van, which was carrying seven members of the family, spun around and overturned, ejecting five people, Hixson said. The identities of the deceased had not been released, but Hixson said he believes the family is from the Los Angeles area.
