    Three family members from San Pablo died Thursday morning after the SUV they were riding in slammed into a big-rig parked on the shoulder of westbound Interstate 80 just before the Bay Bridge Toll Plaza, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    The driver, a male, and two female passengers in the back of the Ford Escape, died at the scene, according to the CHP. Another passenger, who is also a member of the family, is said to be "clinging to life." 

    The Ford Escape crashed into the big-rig around 1:20 a.m., according to the CHP.

    The victims were identified as 19-year-old Eva Villareal, 22-year-old Sara Villareal and 24-year-old Eliab Villareal, according to the Alameda Coronor's Office.

    Speed and wet conditions are believed to have played a role in the crash, the CHP reported.

    Nearby, one person died and another suffered major injuries in a crash on Interstate 580 Thursday morning.
