PASADENA >> A drunken driver ran from the scene of an early-morning crash on the 134 Freeway in Pasadena that left a Monrovia man dead, authorities said.
Eduardo Macias, 24, of Pasadena was found and arrested about two hours after the 1 a.m. crash on the eastbound 134 Freeway, just west of Orange Grove Boulevard and the 210 Freeway, California Highway Patrol officials said in a written statement.
Killed was a 41-year-old Monrovia man, officials said. His identity was not released Sunday.
Officials responded to reports of a multi-vehicle wreck and found a crash involving three vehicles, described as a 1998 Toyota, a 1992 Toyota and a 2016 Honda, according to the CHP.
Pasadena Fire Department paramedics pronounced the driver of the 1992 Toyota dead at the scene, officials said. Two 18-year-old women inside the Honda were treated for injuries not believed to be serious.
The driver of the 1998 Toyota — later identified as Macias — fled from the scene on foot, according to the CHP statement.
CHP officers found and arrested Macias about two hours later, CHP Officer Monica Posada said.
After examination at a hospital, Macias was expected to be booked for felony drunken driving, she said. Additional charges, such as hit-and-run, may be sought by prosecutors later as well. ...MORE
