Authorities have identified the three members of a family who were killed as they slept after a suspected drunk driver plowed his pickup truck into their parked trailer home.
Sutter County Sheriff's Office spokesman Undersheriff Scott Smallwood said Monday 38-year-old Jose Pacheco, 34-year-old Anna Pacheco and their 10-year-old son Angel Pacheco were killed Saturday night.
He says the Pacheco's 11-year-old daughter is in critical condition.
The California Highway Patrol says 33-year-old Ismael Huazo-Jardinez was driving "at a high rate of speed" when his truck crashed into the Pacheco's trailer Saturday night in the agricultural community of Knights Landing near Sacramento.
Smallwood says Huazo-Jardinez was released Sunday after posting $300,000 bail.
Huazo-Jardinez is scheduled to appear in court on June 10.
It wasn't immediately known if Huazo-Jardinez has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
