Jesus Segura Herrera, 29, of Orange is suspected of DUI following the 2:20 a.m. crash at Grand and McFadden avenues, the Santa Ana Police Department said in a written statement. His record has "prior arrests for DUI dating back to 2008," police said.

He was driving an Acura TL north Grand Avenue when he slammed into the rear of a Scion, police said.

Paramedics treated both drivers and one passenger from the Scion before taking them to hospitals, officials said. A second, rear passenger in the Scion was found trapped in the car and pronounced dead at the scene.

The identity of the person killed in the crash was not released Sunday.

Investigators determined Herrera was under the influence of alcohol.
