Sean Danniel Quintero Partied with Friends when the Mishap took Place

19 year old Sean Danniel Quintero had been partying with friends when the car crash took place. It happened on Highway 101, according to prosecutors. The highway is located in South San Francisco. It was 3:30am when the mishap took place.

Quintero was distracted by a conversation which his friends were having in the car. They were discussing radio stations. Distracted, Quintero failed to notice that the traffic in front had stopped. He veered 2 lanes to the right and crashed into a Ford Explorer’s back. No one else in the car was injured other than Qaqish, who was sitting at the back. The victim was thrown forward. She was admitted to a hospital with several injuries and died after a while.

San Francisco police found an open container insider the car. The blood alcohol level in Quintero was measured 3 hours after the mishap took place. It was .15 at that time, which is much higher than the legal limit.
