The Ada County Coroner has identified the four people who died in a head-on traffic crash Friday night in Meridian, including a father and his two sons.

David Humberto Fernandez, 48, and his two sons, Tre Fernandez, 24, and David Aaron Taylor Fernandez, 22, were in a Nissan Titan when it was involved in a head-on collision with a Ford 250, driven by Brian Walter, 61, of Middleton. The crash occurred about 7:30 p.m. Friday on Cherry Lane in Meridian.

First responders took the fourth occupant of the Nissan to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to a tweet from the Ada County Sheriff’s Office Friday night. No other passengers were in the Ford.

The sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate the crash, although it said in tweets Friday night it is unclear which truck drifted across the road.
