Tustin, CA (February 24, 2021) – On Tuesday, police arrested 27-year-old Anthony Robles of Rowland Heights in a fatal DUI crash on the 55 Freeway.
The fatal incident took place before 2:10 a.m., wherein 24-year-old Anaheim woman, Esperanza Cruz, died.
Apparently, Robles was driving a BMW sedan at an unsafe speed south on the 55 Freeway.
