Couple Dead After Wrong-way Crash on 91 Freeway
The wrong-way driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
Vanessa Cease, 24, of Long Beach and Alan Reyes, 26, of Diamond Bar
The crash happened near the Tustin Avenue on-ramp shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday just east of Harbor Boulevard.
Police say a Mercedes-Benz driven by 21-year-old Anthony Louis Fragoso of South Gate crashed into the couple's 2006 Toyota Scion while driving the wrong way in the carpool lane.
Vanessa Cease, 24, of Long Beach and Alan Reyes, 26, of Diamond Bar were pronounced dead at the scene, said coroner's officials.
Fragoso suffered major injuries and was taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange in critical condition where he was arrested on suspicion of DUI, said CHP officer Ray Payton.
Fragoso has been charged with vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.
Charges could escalate if tests come back positive for drugs or alcohol, Payton says.
