LIVERMORE . (AP) — A driver who rear-ended another driver on Interstate 580 in Livermore has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.

California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Creel says the collision happened just after 10 a.m. Thursday when 53-year-old Primitivo Garcia failed to slow his Hummer for traffic and rear-ended a Jeep, causing the Jeep to burst into flames in the westbound lanes near North Livermore Avenue.

The driver of the Jeep died.
