Jose Alberto Pacheco, 38, Anna Grisalda Pacheco, 34 and their 10-year-old son Angel Alberto Pacheco-Espinoza were killed and a further victim, an 11-year-old girl, is fighting for her life after a drunk driver slammed into the sleeping family’s trailer Saturday night.
Suspect Ismael Huazo-Jardinez, 33, allegedly lost control of his truck and crashed into the family’s trailer in Knights Landing, which is about 25 miles northwest from Sacramento. Huazo-Jardinez was driving his Chevrolet Avalanche “at a high rate of speed” when he plowed into the parked trailer, authorities said. “If you add alcohol and speed, it’s a recipe for disaster,” California Highway Patrol spokesman David Hernandez. Huazo-Jardinez was treated at a local hospital for his injuries before he was booked at the Sutter County Jail.
Charges were filed against him for vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and driving under the influence.Neighbors of the family said they were upset to learn that Huazo-Jardinez was released the very next day on a $300,000 bond.
