A married couple who were the parents of two young children were killed after being struck by a car involved in a high-speed chase with police in south Sacramento on Saturday morning. The Sacramento County coroner identified the victims as Tien Le, 46, and Binh Nguyen, 54. Both were from Sacramento. Family members said the pair were nail technicians in the Roseville area who were married and the parents of a 5-year-old and an 8-year-old. They were out getting coffee when they were struck and killed by another driver who was being chased by police. The family of Tien Le and Binh Nguyen, the two hit and killed in a crash Saturday morning, open up about their unanswered questions in what led to the wreck, and the investigation underway. The couple leave behind a 5-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl. @kcranews pic.twitter.com/KtYNVjcTuz “I miss him,” Nguyen’s mother Phuong Hoang said. “And I will always remember what he would do for me and my husband.” Another relative, Son Dang, said his brother-in-law was “a very friendly and lovely person, and his wife also.” Before the 8:45 a.m. crash, Sacramento police said they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on two cars that were “driving recklessly and endangering the community in the area.” Both cars led officers on a chase for about a half of a mile, police said. One of the cars crashed into an uninvolved car in the area of Stockton Boulevard and 65th Street, police said. Both people in the uninvolved car were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The driver of the speeding car sustained major injuries and was taken to the hospital, the California Highway Patrol said. The other car involved in the chase fled the area and has not been located. Police said a total of “26 seconds elapsed from the time officers activated their overhead lights and sirens until the fatal collision occurred.” The pursuit is being reviewed to ensure the officers were following department policy. | RELATED | Read police guidelines for the pursuit of vehicles here . “There do tend to be quite a few crashes in this area due to the amount of people crossing and the mix of crossing and high speed and people not paying attention,” said CHP Officer Jeff Lloyd on Saturday. The posted speed limit on the road of the crash site is 40 MPH. “It is very dangerous to come in and out of these parking lots and getting onto the streets,” said Ray Marayan, who has lived in the area for over 40 years. Crowds gathered at the scene for hours as investigators collected details from the intact crash site. “It makes me sad because I’ve tried to come out the same way before and almost got hit,” said area man, Kenneth Manson. CHP told KCRA 3 that the crash marks the third deadly car crash in the greater Sacramento area in a single week. Anyone with information is asked to contact CHP’s south Sacramento unit at 916-897-5600 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at 916-443-HELP (4357).
