SAN DIEGO California DUI

A woman was killed Monday morning when the car she was riding in crashed through a fence and into a truck parked at an Interstate 5 viewpoint in Cardiff.

The driver of the car, Gina Maria Del Rio, 19, of El Monte was arrested on suspicion of a San Diego DUI - San Diego drunk driving and San Diego California manslaughter.

The accident occurred around 5:10 a.m. off southbound Interstate 5, north of the Manchester Avenue offramp. The car, a Chevrolet Malibu sedan, crashed through a chain-link fence that separates the viewpoint from the freeway lanes and into a truck with a husband and wife inside. The couple was unhurt.

Del Rio and a front-seat passenger in the car were both wearing seat belts and suffered minor injuries. A 19-year-old Whittier woman riding in back was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the rear of the car. She later died at a hospital.

San Diego DUI Officers arrested Del Rio and booked her into the Vista jail for DUI and manslaughter charges under California law.
