Sunnyvale man killed, Pleasanton woman arrested in deadly crash

SUNNYVALE, Calif. (BCN) - A Sunnyvale man was killed in an alleged DUI crash in San Lorenzo Monday night, the California Highway Patrol said Tuesday.

The crash occurred Monday on southbound Interstate Highway 880 north of Paseo Grande just before 10 p.m. when Pleasanton resident Michelle Biala, 30, made an unsafe turn off the right lane and on to the shoulder, according to the CHP.

Biala's vehicle, a 2007 Chevrolet, struck a parked Toyota Prius. The driver of the Prius, identified by the Alameda County coroner's bureau as 38-year-old Steven Lin, of Sunnyvale, was transported to Eden Medical Center, where he was declared dead.

Biala, who suffered a fractured arm in the crash, was arrested after CHP officers determined that she was driving while under the influence of drugs.

She was booked into Santa Rita Jail on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and driving under the influence, with initial bail set at $175,000, according to Alameda County jail records.

She is scheduled for arraignment at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Hayward Hall of Justice, according to jail records.
