A pedestrian killed early Monday in a collision with a suspected DUI driver in Palo Alto has been identified as 67-year-old East Palo Alto resident Louis Williams, according to the Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office. At 6:15 a.m. Monday, Palo Alto police responded to a call about a collision in the 2000 block of East Bayshore Road next to U.S. Highway 101, where police found a man later identified as Williams lying in the roadway, police said.
The driver of a 2007 Nissan Maxima, 19-year-old Miguel Zaragoza Torres, was headed south on East Bayshore when he veered off of the road and crashed into a utility pole, which caused his car to roll over, according to police. The car struck Williams and he died at the scene, police said.
Torres, of Sunnyvale, cooperated with police, who eventually arrested him and booked him into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter, felony DUI and misdemeanor driving without a license, according to police.
