Palmdale brothers Ainsley Hall Hubbard, 27, and Aiden Cochran Hubbard, 31, were driving a Dodge Cara minivan around 2:44 p.m. Rodney Deshone Wright, 40, drove his Ford F-150 pickup truck on the wrong side of the freeway with blood alcohol level of .16 during the fatal collision near the Sepulveda Boulevard underpass in West Los Angeles.
