MERCED, CA (March 8, 2023) – Monday night, authorities arrested Anthony Carrasco after a fatal DUI crash on Highway 99 and O Street.
 
The incident happened on Highway 99 and O Street.
 
According to reports, a 55-year-old Sacramento man drove a big rig hauling a set of double trailers. The man traveled at a speed of 55 mph southbound on Highway 99, north of O Street.
 
Meanwhile, 35-year-old Carrasco from Ceres drove a Chevy Tahoe south on Highway 99, north of O Street. As he traveled at a high rate of speed, he tried to pass the big rig on the narrow right shoulder of Highway 99.
