A Napa woman who died Friday night on Highway 4, possibly in a crash caused by a drunken driver, was identified Monday as 23-year-old Maria Anaya-Garcia.
A 32-year-old Antioch man was arrested on suspicion of felony driving under the influence and manslaughter after the wreck, the California Highway Patrol said.
Anaya-Garcia was riding eastbound in a 2004 Mazda at 10:43 p.m. when the car was hit by a Honda Accord just west of Solano Way, the CHP said. The Mazda went off the road and struck a light pole before plunging down an embankment.
The driver of the Mazda, a 29-year-old Napa man, received major injuries and was taken to a hospital. The CHP did not have an update on his condition.
CHP had received reports of a possible drunken driver after the Honda was seen swerving across the highway shortly before the accident. His name was not released.
