Going back to the incident, the crash unfolded on Sunday night round 10:42 p.m. when Oscar De La Mora Marin, 37, from Reedley California, who was under influence, steered a Subaru he was driving into the center divider on Highway 101. The excessive speed and his attempt to bring the car back to the roadway caused him to overcorrect and lose control. The car rolled over off the freeway, and rested on a nearby frontage road.

Edna, the passenger in the vehicle, was flung from the car during the rollover. She was rushed to Sierra Vista Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead. Marin was taken into custody on DUI charges and held in the San Luis Obispo County Jail.
