Crash Video Files: Coachella, Riverside County, California: Pedestrian Celena Nava Killed And 1 Victim Injured On Calhoun Street; Julio Alfredo Jimenez Arrested

A man has been arrested after allegedly hitting two pedestrians. One of the victims was killed, and the other was injured. Drunk driving is suspected.

Date: Sunday, October 20, 2013

Time: About 7 at night

City / County / State: Coachella, Riverside County, California

Address: Calhoun Street

Victims Killed:

1. Celena Nava was 25 years old. She lived in Coachella.

Victims Injured:

Another female pedestrian suffered injuries but is expected to survive. Her name and other personal details were not released.

Suspect:

Julio Alfredo Jimenez is 55 and from Indio, California.

Cause:

Police believe that Jimenez struck Nava and the other victim when they were on the shoulder of the road. Before the accident occurred, witnesses reportedly noticed that a person believed to be Jimenez was driving erratically from lane to lane and even on the sidewalk.

Criminal Charges?

Jimenez has been charged with multiple counts related to this accident. He is charged with murder, which may be a case of overcharging. Gross vehicular manslaughter, which he is also charged with, sounds more like what MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED in this case. Of course, I’m not sure if they are going to have hard proof of intoxication. Jimenez is also facing some drunk-driving charges.
