LOS BANOS (AP) — Los Banos police say one man has been killed and another sustained injuries after a drunk driver who had been street racing crashed into them.

KFSN-TV reports  20-year-old Marcus Perez-Negrete of Clovis has been arrested and is facing several charges, including DUI and vehicular manslaughter.

Investigators say the suspect ran a stop sign Sunday morning and slammed into the victim’s car. A 60-year-old man in the passenger seat died after being ejected from the vehicle and the driver suffered minor injuries.

Police have also notified Alcohol Beverage Control officials about the crash due to the suspect being underage. He is being held in Merced County Jail on more than $400,000 bail.
