LIVERMORE, Calif. (AP) — The names of a woman and a toddler who were killed when a suspected drunken driver crashed into a Northern California apartment complex have been released.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Monday (http://bit.ly/1bs2Wif ) that 40-year-old Esperanza Morales of Seaside and her daughter Julie were killed Saturday evening as they walked on a pathway near an apartment complex in Livermore, east of San Francisco.
Two other young children suffered minor injuries.
Police arrested 35-year-old Brian Jones of Livermore on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and another alcohol-related driving count.
He posted $350,000 bail Sunday. Jones couldn't be reached for comment Monday.
Livermore police Officer Ryan Sanchez says Jones lost control of his vehicle near a curve and smashed into the apartment complex.
Sanchez says the crash happened after Jones visited a nearby wine festival.
