California: three in family killed by Mason Robert Fish; charged with DUI drugs & 3 counts of vehicular homicide

From Fox 5 San Diego

VISTA, Calif. — Family and friends of 40-year-old Petra Arango — one of three people who lost their lives in a North County crash Tuesday — held a candlelight vigil in Vista Thursday.

Arango, her sister and mother were all killed in the suspected DUI crash in Oceanside.

The vigil was held at 6 p.m. in front of Silver Oak Country Estates, where Arango worked as a care provider for the last five years.

“You know those people in life that are like, really, really, really, genuine? She’s one of those people,” Arango’s co-worker, Lorena Eckert, said. “Just a very warm, compassionate, hardworking family.”

Mason Robert Fish was heading south on South Coast Highway shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday when he allegedly ran a red light at Oceanside Boulevard, crashing his 2007 Toyota Tacoma into the driver’s side of an eastbound 2003 Mazda sedan, according to police.

The impact sent the sedan spinning “violently” across the road crossing and ejected two backseat passengers, 40-year-old Petra Arango of Oceanside and a 13-year-old girl, onto the pavement, Sgt. Rick Davis said
