SIMI VALLEY (AP) — Police say a woman has been arrested in connection with a New Year’s Day crash that killed her spouse, an off-duty Los Angeles police officer.
Simi Valley police say 25-year-old Alayna Monroe was arrested Thursday on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
Police said Monroe was behind the wheel when she crashed into an Uber car shortly after 2 a.m. on Jan. 1.
Police said last month that they believed one of the cars didn’t stop at a red light.
Authorities say the Uber driver and a passenger in her car will survive their injuries.
