OAKLEY (June 29, 2016)- According to the San Francisco Gate, a 15-year-old girl identified as Roshel Madlangbayan was killed and another teen was gravely injured after being struck Tuesday afternoon on Cypress Road.
At roughly 2:45 p.m., Madlangbayan and a 16-year-old girl were crossing Cypress Road headed westbound. At the same time, a woman driving a station wagon headed eastbound on Cypress swerved and suddenly struck the two girls.
