María Concepción Orellana de Carpio, 89, and her daughter Ana Virginia Carpio de Landaverde, 59, originally from Metapán, were traveling to a medical appointment in San Salvador and had contracted the Uber service, but upon reaching Ciudad Maple, the car tire, came off its axle and the driver lost control, crashing into a tree.
