A 49-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of DUI after a crash that turned fatal on Interstate Highway 280 in Daly City on Thursday night, according to the California Highway Patrol. The crash was reported at about 9:50 p.m. on northbound Highway 280 just north of Hickey Boulevard.
Kaixaun Lei was driving a 2000 Jeep Cherokee that went off the roadway and up an embankment, CHP officials said. The Jeep then overturned numerous times and came to rest in the highway’s center divide. Christy Fok, 30, a passenger in the Jeep, was apparently not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle, according to the CHP. She was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries at about 9:30 a.m. today. Lei and a 31-year-old woman who was also in the car were wearing their seatbelts and suffered minor to moderate injuries. They were also taken to the hospital and it was determined that Lei was under the influence of alcohol, CHP officials said.
After being medically cleared, Lei was booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of DUI, according to the CHP.
