6:02 am
were out here this morning or this happened around 2:30. that's the most obvious indication alcohol was involved are the beer cans on the scene. it was a 27-year-old woman who has been arrested on suspicion of dui and vehicular manslaughter. another woman, possibly her friend in her late 20s, early 30s, has been killed after she was crushed by the suv that her friend was allegedly driving at the time. it appears what happened is that the other woman who was crushed when the suv backed into, slammed into, a garage door at one of the townhomes. you can see the destruction on the garage door. it looks like it hit one of the columns separating the two garages. it was quite an impact. police receiving a 911 call this morning, a person who lives in the townhome is not related to the women, heard someone crying, when police arrived they did find the driver outside the suv, the other woman lying dead in the driveway. one man who lives nearby tells us he was awoken by sounds this morning and this is what he
6:03 am
heard. what he heard was a female voice talking to another one saying come on, come on, come on. something to that effect. it's not clear whether that was the woman who was hit and killed helping her friend guide the car out of a parking spot. that's not clear. he was indicating that could be the case but he didn't have eyes on this. this is what he heard. you can see the police are out here and public information officer albert morales arrived so we're hopefully going to get more information. as it stands now, one woman dead, another woman, 27-year-old woman, she in custody of police arrested again on suspicion of dui and vehicular manslaughter. the woman killed, the 34th person to die in a traffic accident here in san jose this year. reporting live in san jose, bob
