Alleged Drunk Driver Crashes on Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach, Killing Passenger

LONG BEACH, CA (August 19, 2019) – A driver—who is alleged to have been driving under the influence (DUI) early in the morning on Sunday—crashed in Long Beach, killing his passenger. The August 18 incident occurred on Pacific Coast Highway close to Grand Avenue.
