A 25-year-old Daly City man who allegedly ran from the scene of a Memorial Day crash in Colma that killed three people, including his girlfriend, was charged Thursday with vehicular manslaughter with intoxication.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Paul Diaz was also charged with felony hit and run, gross negligence and having a prior DUI conviction. Diaz had been held in jail on $750,000 bail, and had turned himself in on Monday, hours after the 7:40 a.m. accident in the 2000 block of Hillside Boulevard.
      
Police said the Ford Mustang he was driving crashed into a Honda, causing the Mustang to break in half. Three people inside the car were pronounced dead: Rosa Maria Falla, 23, of Daly City, who he was dating, and Rubin Abel Vasquez, 22, and Jonathan Jade Mouton, 21, both of Daly City.
      
The crash sent the Honda through a cement wall at the Cypress Lawn cemetery. The driver of that vehicle was not seriously injured.
