LODI, Calif. (AP) — Police in Lodi (LOH'-deye), California say the suspect in the car crash that killed five family members had been drinking with his father shortly before the accident.
According to police, 28-year-old Ryan Christopher Morales had been released from prison last month and did not have a driver's license. He remains in the hospital in critical condition.
A search warrant filed with the San Joaquin Superior Court indicates that an officer could smell alcohol on Morales as he was pinned inside a GMC Yukon.
The document said Morales was speeding during rush hour Tuesday when he struck a Ford F-150 carrying a Lodi family, including a woman seven months pregnant.
Luis Miranda was killed, along with his pregnant wife Viviana Rodriguez. Also killed were three of their four young children. One son survived.
