LIVERMORE, Calif. (AP) — Police say a car driven by a suspected drunken driver crashed into a Northern California apartment complex, killing a woman and toddler and slightly injuring two other children as they all walked together outside.
The crash occurred Saturday evening in Livermore, when a driver lost control near a curve and smashed into the apartment complex. The vehicle struck a 40-year-old woman walking with three children on a path at the complex. Livermore police say the woman and one child, a 14-month-old, were killed. A 6-year-old and a 7-year-old with them suffered cuts.
Police say Brian Jones of Livermore was arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and another alcohol-related driving count.
