NorCal mom, 14-month-old baby killed by alleged DUI driver

A mother and child were killed when an alleged drunk driver crashed into an apartment complex in Livermore, Calif. on May 2, 2015.

A vehicle driven by an alleged drunk driver plowed into a Northern California apartment complex, killing a woman and her 14-month-old baby.

The two victims, along with two other children, were walking on a paved pathway outside the complex in Livermore just before 7 p.m. Saturday when 35-year-old Brian Jones lost control of his car, missed a turn and slammed into the apartment complex.

"Based on the vehicle and the condition of it, it appears that speed was definitely involved," said Lt. John Hurd. "It's a 35 mile per hour roadway, probably much faster than that."

Police say two boys in the backyard, ages 6 and 7, were hit by debris from the vehicle and transported to local hospitals. The driver has been charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

Anyone with further information on this incident was urged to contact the Livermore Police Department at (925) 371-4777.
