According to the San Diego Union Tribune, 2 people were killed and 2 others were hurt in a suspected DUI car accident on the Interstate 15 in San Diego on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.
The fatal chain-reaction car accident happened around 11:45 p.m. and was caused by 37-year-old Jeffrey Brian Levi. Levi was speeding in his Ford Mustang, driving erratically, when he hit the back of a Toyota Corolla. The Toyota spun out and crashed into the center median and was hit by a Ford Explorer. The Toyota engulfed in flames and the SUV flipped over.
Witnesses stopped and tried to rescue the people out of the burning car. They were able to help an 18-year-old female passenger, but they were unable to help the driver and another passenger. Unfortunately, the driver and the other passenger, who were both males, died. The 18-year-old female, who was rescued from the Toyota, sustained serious injuries and the driver of the SUV sustained moderate injuries. Both were transported to a nearby hospital.
The two deceased men involved in the car accident were identified as David Dominguez, 33, and Isaac Felix, 18. The female passenger who was rescued from the burning vehicle was identified as 18-year-old Giovanna Dominguez. They were all siblings.
According to authorities, the Mustang ended up in a ditch on the side of the freeway and the driver fled the scene. The driver of the Mustang, Levi, was later found and detained. Levi was charged with murder, gross vehicular manslaughter, felony DUI, and felony hit and run causing injury or death. A GoFundMe page was created to help with the funeral expenses for the two deceased victims.
