    Driver, 23, Arrested on Felony Vehicular Manslaughter, DUI After Gilroy Quadruple Fatal

    A tow truck pulls a Ford Mustang out of a ravine in Gilroy on May 13, 2015 after four passengers inside died the night before. The driver suffered major injuries.

    The California Highway Patrol arrested  23-year-old  Anthony Imbronone III of Gilroy at his home, after four people died in his Ford Mustang earlier this month.

    CHP Sgt. Herb Kellogg said Imbronone was arrested on four counts of felony vehicular manslaughter and felony DUI. He was booked into the Santa Clara County jail on Thursday and his bail was set at $250,000.

    Efforts to reach Imbrone, his family, or his lawyer,  were not immediately successful. He likely will make his first court appearance next week.

    The charges stem from May 12, when four of Imbronone's passengers died on Leavesley Road in Gilroy. Officers said they had smelled alcohol on his breath and that he likely took the corner too fast.
