A 21-year-old woman who allegedly crashed her Lexus into a Lyft car on state Route 163 in Balboa Park while drunk last weekend, killing a passenger in the ride-hailing vehicle and injuring the other two occupants, was jailed Wednesday upon her release from a hospital.
Alondra Selena Marquez of San Diego was headed south on the freeway when she rear-ended the Mazda sedan near Laurel Street about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, according to the California Highway Patrol.
One of two passengers in the Mazda, a 40-year-old San Francisco man, died at the scene of the wreck, CHP public-affairs Officer Jake Sanchez said. The victim’s name has been withheld pending family notification.
Medics took the other two men in the Mazda and Marquez, who had been alone in her car, to hospitals for treatment of moderately serious to severe injuries.
Marquez was released from medical care Wednesday afternoon and was booked into county jail on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated, Sanchez said.
The 27-year-old Lyft driver also has been discharged from the hospital, but the surviving passenger, a 33-year-old San Leandro resident, remains in a trauma center, the officer said.
