The Sacramento County Coroner's Office has identified the San Ramon man who died in a suspected DUI crash that injured four other people near the Antioch Bridge on Memorial Day weekend.
The decedent was 38-year-old Aaron James Price, according to the coroner. Price had served in the U.S. Navy, according to a brief obituary online from his family -- which also said Price was from Oakland, although authorities confirmed his most recent official address was in San Ramon.
Officers from the California Highway Patrol's South Sacramento Office said they are investigating the likelihood that Price was intoxicated while behind the wheel of a Mazda that was driving recklessly and speeding on southbound Highway 160 just north of the Antioch Bridge with three children in the car that night.
According to the CHP, the Mazda crossed the double-yellow lines to the left directly into the path of an oncoming Audi at about 10:20 p.m. May 29. The two vehicles collided, sending the Audi spinning to the right-hand shoulder and flipping the Mazda onto its roof in the southbound lane.
The Mazda's driver -- later identified as Price -- was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, according to the CHP.
Two boys, ages 4 and 6, were in the back seat and appeared not to be wearing seat belts either, nor were there any child seats inside, according to the CHP. A 15-year-old girl in the front passenger seat did appear to be wearing a seat belt.
All three youth were transported to separate hospitals with major injuries. The relationship between the Mazda's occupants was not immediately clear, according to the CHP.
The driver of the Audi -- a 71-year-old woman from Rio Vista whose name was not released -- also sustained major injuries.
There were no updates on any of the surviving victims' conditions as of last Friday, according to CHP Officer Mark Leavitt.
Based on witness accounts and other evidence, the CHP said they suspect Price was driving under the influence at the time of the collision. The incident remains under investigation.
