• Drunk Driving to Blame in Alhambra Man’s Death


    ALHAMBRA (CNS) – A man was killed and two people were injured in Alhambra in a two-vehicle crash that police blamed today on an intoxicated driver.

    The accident on Garfield Avenue under the San Bernardino (10) Freeway was reported around 9:30 p.m. Sunday, said Alhambra police Lt. Gabriel Ponce.

    “A male passenger who was sitting in the back seat of one of the vehicles died at the scene,” Ponce said. The woman driver and man sitting in the front passenger seat complained of pain and were transported to hospitals.     The victims were in an SUV that was struck by car, said Alhambra police Sgt. Jim Hammond.

    None of the men in the car was hurt, Ponce said, adding that the driver was arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter and DUI.

    Garfield Avenue onramps and offramps were closed to accommodate cleanup crews and investigators, except the offramp to northbound Garfield, he said.

    The name of the man who died was withheld pending family notification, Ponce said. The coroner’s office said he was in his late 40s.

    The Alhambra Police Department asked that anyone who witnessed the collision to call investigators at (626) 570-5151 or (626) 570-5162.
