Escondido Man Arrested in Connection with Fatal DUI Accident

An Escondido man has been arrested for suspicion of DUI after he lost controlled of his Lexus. His passenger perished in the accident.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Georg M. Reyes was driving eastbound on Avenue S in the Antelope Valley, an area in Northern Los Angeles County, when his car drifted off onto the shoulder of the road. While veering his car back onto the road, Reyes lost control, crossed the median, and overturned. After sliding across several lanes on the opposite side of the road, Reyes' overturned vehicle finally came to a stop.

His passenger, 20-year-old Michelle Garcia, also from Escondido, was not wearing a seatbelt, which is probably why she was thrown from the vehicle. Garcia died at the scene.

Reyes was transported to the hospital with major and moderate injuries, and later was arrested for DUI. It has not yet been reported whether or not he'll face felony DUI charges and/or vehicular manslaughter charges. Reyes' BAC level has also not yet been confirmed.

Causing a fatal DUI accident is one of the most serious situations you can find yourself in. Vehicular manslaughter is a felony offense punishable by thousands of dollars in fines, restitution, and anywhere from 1 year in jail to 10 years in prison.
