NEWARK — A 22-year-old man died of injuries after a weekend vehicle crash, and the driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, authorities said.
In a statement Monday, police said officers and Alameda County Fire Department firefighters responded to the crash around 11:20 p.m. When officers arrived at Saint Isabel Street near Cedar Boulevard, they found a vehicle with four people inside that had struck a parked vehicle with no one inside.
Police provided emergency life-saving care to an unresponsive man inside the first vehicle; he was taken to a hospital and later pronounced dead. The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office coroner’s bureau identified him Monday evening as Juan Gonzalez-Ramirez.
The other three people in the vehicle suffered minor injuries. The driver, a 24-year-old Newark resident, was later arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and booked into Santa Rita jail. A records check Monday evening did not list him in custody.
Police said the crash, the city’s first fatal traffic incident of the year, was under investigation. Anyone with information may call Newark police Officer Anthony Piquette at 510-578-4953 or e-mail email@example.com.
