1 Dead and 1 Seriously Injured in DUI Chase Crash near Highway 101

 
SAN JOSE, CA (June 10, 2019) – Authorities arrested 28-year-old Alexander Zumini after a police chase ended in a fatal crash, early Monday morning.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident happened shortly after 3:00 AM. Officers noticed Zumini allegedly driving erratically and attempted to pull him over. Zumini refused to stop and fled the area at approximately 120 mph, turning his lights off at one point in the chase.
 
The BMW then took the Yerba Buena Road off-ramp and ran the red light at the intersection. There, it slammed into a minivan traveling on a green light. The minivan came to rest against the sidewalk, while the BMW came to rest on southbound Highway 101. Zumini still attempted to flee the scene on foot but was immediately caught.
 
Unfortunately, the minivan driver died at the scene. Authorities did not disclose his identity, pending notification of next of kin. Meanwhile, his passenger suffered serious injuries and remains in critical condition.
 
Authorities charged Zumini with gross vehicle manslaughter, DUI causing serious injury, felony hit-and-run, felony evading a police officer, possession of methamphetamine for sale along with the original parole violation. Officers also arrested his passenger, identified as 27-year-old Melissa Dawn Vincent, on suspicion of being in possession of stolen property and identity theft-related charges.
 
The San Jose Police Department is investigating the incident.
