The California Highway Patrol has identified a 28-year-old Shandon man as the person killed when an intoxicated driver wrecked an SUV near Creston on Sunday.

Artemio V. Pacheco died in the crash, while the driver, 31-year-old Eusebio Ruizluis of Shandon, survived with minor scrapes and cuts. Deputies booked Ruizluis into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on DUI and vehicular manslaughter charges.

At about 4:48 p.m. on Sunday, Ruizluis was driving a 2000 Ford Expedition northbound on Creston Road north of Highway 41 at an unknown speed. Ruizluis made an unsafe turning movement toward the east shoulder of the road, lost control and rolled over multiple times, according to the CHP.

The SUV came to a rest on its wheels on the east shoulder of the road. Responders arrived at the scene and pronounced Pacheco dead. Pacheco died of blunt force trauma.

Officers investigated the crash and arrested Ruizluis for felony DUI and vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

Ruizluis was also charged with driving with a BAC of .10 percent or more causing bodily injury, according to the county sheriff’s office website. He remains in custody with his bail set at $100,000.

Guadalupe, CA: Guadalupe Woman Killed in Amtrak Train vs. Car Crash

 

Authorities investigating collision on the railroad tracks near intersection of Highway 1 and West Main Street/Highway 166

A Guadalupe woman was killed when her vehicle was struck by an Amtrak train Monday afternoon. 

The collision occurred around 3 p.m. at a railroad tracks crossing near Guadalupe Street (Highway 1) and West Main Street (Highway 166), according to authorities. 

The driver, a Guadalupe resident, was pronounced dead at the scene and the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Coroner’s Office personnel were en route. 

The vehicle, a Saturn Vue, came to rest on its side, more than one rail car length from the intersection.

Police were investigating statements from witnesses who reported that the driver went around the railroad crossing arms, which showed signs of damage from the crash.

Highway 166 was closed at Obispo Street and the northbound Amtrak train was expected to be stopped for about three hours at the scene. 

Guadalupe fire and police personnel responded to the collision scene, along with the California Highway Patrol and sheriff’s deputies. 

The Guadalupe Police Department is reportedly taking the lead to investigate the case, with assistance from sheriff’s deputies and the CHP, Public Safety Director Gary Hoving said.
