5 are dead after California crash

Five people were killed and six others were injured in a California crash after a car crashed into a group of 12 motorcycles.

According to USA Today, the driver of the car, Carlos Ramirez Bobadilla, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence when alcohol was detected on his breath after the crash. It is unclear if alleged consumption contributed to the accident, and Bobadilla was arrested on a misdemeanor.

According to the motorcyclist who called 911, a gold Honda Civic attempted to pass the motorcycles, when a Dodge Avenger, driven by Bobadilla, had to swerve to miss the Honda and collided with the motorcycles, CNN reported.

Four motorcyclists and a passenger in the Avenger were killed, and five of the six injured were in serious condition.
