SAN JOSE — A suspected drunken driver, Jessica Marie Zamora, was already wanted for DUI warrant when she killed self and boy in crash, when she caused a head-on crash Christmas morning that killed her and a teen boy riding in another car with his family, authorities said.
Before she got behind the wheel for that fateful drive, she was reportedly seen having a couple of drinks at a nearby bar. She didn’t make it a half-mile before she careened downhill over the center median separating the wide and fast-moving traffic on Capitol Expressway.
On Wednesday, the coroner’s office formally identified 14-year-old San Jose resident Andrew Nguyen as the second victim of the collision. He was riding with his parents in an eastbound silver 2004 Lexus on Capitol near Snell Avenue when around 12:28 a.m., an oncoming 2012 Chevy Malibu reportedly crossed over into their lanes and hit them head-on, police said.
