A special California Highway Patrol accident team Monday sought the cause of a truck-station wagon collision that killed a youth baseball coach, his two sons and three other players on rain-slick U.S. 101. The CHP said the truck towing two empty trailers was southbound Sunday at 9:15 a.m. and traveling at about 50 m.p.h. when it suddenly veered into the northbound lane and struck the station wagon. Officers said the speed of the station wagon was unknown. The victims, all from Santa Rosa, were identified as Roy A. Daniel Jr., 44; his sons, Roy III, 16, and Shane, 10; Nick Mataya, 16; Brent Towers, 17, and Nate Bartholomew, 16. The Daniels and the other youngsters were headed toward Ft.
