Chandler couple killed in San Diego bridge crash

A Navy sailor is facing DUI and vehicular manslaughter charges after the pick-up truck that he was driving plunged off a Coronado bridge near San Diego, killing four people and injuring nine others at a festival below. Two of those four people were a couple from Chandler.
The California highway patrol says the suspect, Richard Sepolio, was alone in the truck Saturday afternoon when he lost control and plummeted 60 feet onto a vendor's booth below.
He remains hospitalized with serious injuries. 

Family members tell FOX 10 that Cruz and Anna-Marie Contreras were visiting a motorcycle festival in San Diego's Chicano Park when a truck rolled off the Coronado Bridge and hit them and two other people.

All four people were killed and police say the 25-year-old driver of the truck is hospitalized and may have been under the influence. Investigators say the driver is a Navy serviceman and was on-duty at the time of the crash.

Family members say Cruz and Anna-Marie were married for 35 years and were beloved grandparents.
