O.C. crash kills 5 teens: Police release teens' names

The O.C. crash that killed 5 teens involved speed, police say. Two of the 5 teens were sisters.

Coroner's officials say five teens died in a fiery California crash. Of the five teenage high school students, two were sisters.

Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said Tuesday the teens were students in the Irvine Unified School District.

The names of the three girls and two boys were released a day after they were killed in the single-car accident in Newport Beach.

The driver was identified as 17-year-old Abdulrahman Alyahyan, a senior at University High School.

The passengers included 17-year-old Robin Cabrera, a senior at Irvine High School, and her 16-year-old sister Aurora, a sophomore at the same school. Also killed were Cecilia Zamora and Nozad Al Hamawendi, both 17-year-old juniors at Irvine High School.

Police say speed was a factor.
