MADERA COUNTY, California (April 15, 2019) — Troyce Raqueno, 17, and Christian Lopez, 11, both died in a head-on car crash Saturday in Madera County.
Troyce was driving an Audi that collided head-on with a Toyota 4-Runner by Christian and his family about 4:25 p.m. The 11-year-old child was seated in the back seat of the Toyota when the two vehicles collided on Avenue 12 near Road 34 1/2, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Those who knew Raqueno say he was planning to join the Army, following in the footsteps of his older sister.
