The man who was behind the wheel during a triple fatal crash on Memorial Day is scheduled to be arraigned in a Northern California courtroom.
A Santa Clara County judge on Thursday will formally charge Paul Diaz of Daly City with multiple felonies including vehicular manslaughter with intoxication and gross negligence.
The 25-year-old Diaz is accused of crashing a Ford Mustang in Colma early Monday, killing his passengers, 23-year-old Rosa Falla, 21-year-old Jonathan Mouton and 22-year-old Ruvin Vazquez, all from Daly City, after the car rear-ended a Honda and split in two.
Authorities said Diaz was speeding in the Mustang prior to the crash and believe alcohol was a factor based on evidence found inside the car.
Diaz allegedly fled the scene of the accident before turning himself in six hours later. He is being held on $750,000 bail.
