From Visalia Times-Delta
A 21-year-old Orosi woman involved in a DUI-related collision has died after spending nearly a week in the hospital fighting for her life.
Tulare police were called Saturday afternoon to Cartmill Avenue and Hillman Street after reports of a three-car collision.
When officers arrived, they found a Nissan Altima with two people seriously injured inside. Adrianna Chavez, 21, and Alejandro Chavez, 13, both of Orosi, were rushed to the hospital.
Alejandro later died from his injuries.
Police believe Servando Lopez Garcia, 49, of Visalia, was driving under the influence when he slammed into the Altima.
Garcia was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide, driving under the influence causing injury, failure to have an ignition interlock device, and driving on a suspended license.
Garcia, who had a previous DUI, is expected back in court on Wednesday. MORE
