Survivor Honors The Chosen One Actors Who Died in Vehicle Crash
Garduño and González died following an accident that took place while they were in transit from Santa Rosalía to the local airport. Six others—including two other cast members and four crew members—were injured but remain stable, E! News confirmed.
Albelda was among the survivors. According to Deadline, he suffered head trauma from the accident and doesn’t remember the ride to the airport, only waking up in the ambulance. He did, however, describe the setup of the vehicle.
“Inside the van, the setup was three rows for passengers behind the driver and passenger seats in the front,” Albelda said. “I normally sat in the second row, and believe that’s where I was sitting when the accident happened. It’s my understanding that Paco and Ray were sitting in different rows, at the end closest to the van’s sliding door. I have been told the van spun around many times and the sliding door flew open. My guess based on what I’ve been told is that [without seatbelts], Paco and Ray were ejected.”
Albelda noted there were seatbelts in the van.
