ANSWER: Six Del Campo High School students were returning from a trip to a coffee shop about 11 p.m. March 18, 1995, when the Ford Bronco they were riding in swerved off Greenback Lane in Folsom and flipped over at least twice.

The driver told police that he swerved to avoid an animal, according to stories in The Bee.

Three girls and three boys were in the vehicle, and police said only the driver was wearing a seat belt. The three girls, all in the back, were ejected from the vehicle.

Heidi Camblin, Elizabeth Crosta and Lori Giordano, all honor students at Del Campo, were critically injured. Camblin and Crosta suffered severe head injuries and were comatose. Camblin died 10 days after the crash.

According to a story in The Bee, Crosta remained in a coma a year later and was being cared for by her mother, who was a nurse. Giordano had recovered from her injuries and graduated from Del Campo in 1995.
