BELLFLOWER (CBS) — A man has been booked on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and felony drunken driving following a fatal collision in Bellflower.

The two-car crash, which claimed the life of a 49-year-old grandmother, occurred about 7:15 p.m. Friday on Alondra Boulevard near McNab Avenue.

Her 20-year-old was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The woman’s 18-month-old granddaughter managed to escape without injury but was checked out subsequent to the crash.
