Humberto Gonzalez, 49, Kills Woman and Injures Several People in Monrovia DUI Crash
MONROVIA, CA (June 24, 2021) – Authorities detained Humberto Gonzalez after a fatal DUI crash on the 210 Freeway in Monrovia.
The California Highway Patrol determined that the 49-year-old Pacoima man was under the influence when the accident occurred on Wednesday.
The incident began when Humberto Gonzalez was driving a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado in the carpool lane of the 210 Freeway in Monrovia.
A 2008 Lexus ES350 traveling ahead of him then slowed down due to slower traffic near Huntington Drive. In the process, Humberto Gonzalez rear-ended the Lexus.
The Lexus then slammed into a 2013 Ford F-150 in front. CHP said the Lexus spun out of control and collided with several vehicles on the freeway.

Meanwhile, Humberto Gonzalez complained of pain to his legs following the Monrovia crash. CHP soon arrested him on suspicion of DUI with a bail set at $100,000.
