The driver hit a tree, a pole and an electrical box before slamming into the victim, according to investigators. The man suffered major injuries and was taken to the UC Irvine Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Officials have not released the identity of the victim.
Beiser was booked at the Anaheim Detention Facility on $100,000 bail, police said.
