Michael Olifir, Diana Filinyuk Die; Brandy Kincaid Involved in Roseville Car Accident
ROSEVILLE, CA (February 10, 2022) — Diana Filinyuk and Michael Olifir both died after being hit by a car on the 80 Freeway near Roseville Parkway Saturday morning.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the tragic crash happened around 12:20 a.m. For possible DUI-related reasons, a Honda Accord and a Nissan Altima collided on the freeway.
Subsequently, 19-year-old Filinyuk and 21-year-old Olifir saw the accident and pulled over to assist the possibly injured motorists.
After a brief exchange with the crash victims, the young couple began walking toward their vehicle. However, a 2017 Jeep Commander, driven by 45-year-old Brandy Kincaid, struck them.
As a result, Filinyuk and Olifir suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.
Following the accident, officers arrested the Honda driver involved in the initial crash for DUI. Neither that driver nor the Nissan driver sustained any wounds.
Police officers did not arrest Kincaid. Although, an ongoing investigation should confirm more details.
