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.
The passengers inside his car were identified as 24-year-old Joseph Danniel Vasquez-Flemate. The others were three 18-year-old women: Sara Williams, a senior at Christopher High School, and Yesenia Mendoza-Pena and Yolanda Ester Jimenez, both seniors at Mt. Madonna Continuation High School.
