A 68-year-old man was recently arrested for a suspected drunk driving incident in Huntington Beach that resulted in fatal injuries. According to Huntington Beach Independent, the crash occurred at 8:35 pm when the suspect’s vehicle collided with a motorcycle.

The suspect was traveling north on Goldenwest Street when his vehicle collided with a motorcycle traveling south on the same road. The 24-year-old male driver of the motorcycle broke both legs and his 25-year-old female passenger sustained fatal injuries. She was treated at UC Irvine Medical Center before she died.

The suspect was not injured in the accident. He was arrested for suspected driving under the influence (DUI) causing injury and posted bail of $100,000.
