Sean Bouvier Arrested for Vehicular Manslaughter after Passenger Killed in San Jose Crash

 
SAN JOSE, CA (August 14, 2019) – A man was killed in a suspected DUI crash early Wednesday morning on Highway 87 in San Jose.
 
The Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office identified the victim as 33-year-old Christopher Rodden, a San Jose resident.
 
Rodden was a passenger in a car that violently crashed as it fled from CHP officers in San Jose around 2:00 a.m.
 
According to the CHP, a 34-year-old Sean Bouvier of San Jose was driving the car south on Highway 87. Officers spotted the car weaving and tried to pull it over for a suspected DUI traffic stop.
 
Instead, the car exited eastbound Curtner Avenue and ran multiple red lights while officers pursued.
 
As CHP officers lost track of the car around Monterey Road and decided to end the pursuit, the car collided with a light pole. It then crashed through a chain-link fence and into a parked truck trailer at Tully and Monterey roads.
 
As a result, Rodden died at the scene.
 
Paramedics transported Bouvier to Valley Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
 
Bouvier was later arrested on charges of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence, and evading and causing injury or death, police said Friday. He is being held on $150,000 bail.


We extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Christopher Rodden in this very unfortunate time of their lives.
