    An 8-year-old girl was killed in a crash on state Highway 85 in San Jose Monday afternoon, April 21, 2014.

    The man involved in a deadly car crash that killed an 8-year-old girl in April was under the influence of drugs, according to police.

    Louis Bernabei Jr. was arrested Friday after investigators said he was on methadone, and his doctor told him he should not be driving. The crash happened last April on northbound 85 in Cupertino.

    Investigators said Bernabei plowed his jeep into an SUV that was pulled to the shoulder lane. The crash killed a little girl inside the SUV.

    Bernabei is facing several charges, including murder.
