An 18-year-old man is scheduled to make an initial court appearance on Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence after authorities say he rear-ended a van in southern Nevada, causing a crash that killed five Southern California family members and injured two others.

Jean Soriano of California was being held without bail on Sunday in the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas pending the hearing. He was booked on charges of failure to decrease speed or use due care, and driving without a driver's license.

The Clark County coroner's office identified the five victims as Genaro Fernandez, 41, of Norwalk, Calif.; Raudel Fernandez-Avila, 49, and Belen Fernandez, 53, both of Lynwood, Calif.; and Angela Sandoval, 13, and Leonardo Fernandez-Avila, 45, both of Los Angeles.

The victims were among seven family members who were in the van, authorities said.
