ORCUTT, Calif. (Feb. 8, 2019) — Rickie Motley, 60, of Orcutt. and his passenger,  Jesse Donald Gluyas, 24, of Solvang, have been identified as the two people who died in a multi-vehicle collision on Highway 135, according to Noozhawk.

The crash was reported Thursday about 6:30 a.m. between the truck and five other motorists. Police and firefighters responded to Highway 135 at Union Valley Parkway to assist those involved, but upon arrival Motley and Gluyas were pronounced dead on the scene, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Paramedics assisted nine people from the other passenger vehicles who suffered minor injuries, but no one was hospitalized. The injured were all Santa Maria residents and ranged in age from 20 to 51 years old.

The semi-tractor trailer truck driver, who had reportedly taken drugs and consumed alcohol, was traveling southbound on Highway 135 when he crashed into the five other vehicles who were stopped at a red traffic light. Paramedics transported the truck driver to Marian Regional Medical Center for treatment of moderate to major injuries suffered in the crash. He was also placed under arrest on suspicion of DUI.

Meanwhile, the large truck’s trailer filled with 60,000 pounds of food had overturned onto its side. The other vehicles were scattered across the roadway with various damage due to the crash.

Police are conducting an investigation into the crash and will eventually file a report stating their findings.
