The bail for the man who surrendered to Colma police after a fatal hit-and-run accident Memorial Day was raised to $1 million Thursday.
Paul Diaz, 25, of Daly City, was charged with vehicular manslaughter, drunken driving, gross negligence, hit-and-run charges, and a parole violation for a previous drunken driving conviction, Wagstaffe said.
Diaz was allegedly the driver in a horrific accident in Colma on Monday about 7:40 a.m., where the green Ford Mustang he was reportedly driving was ripped in half and the three other people in the car were killed. They were identified by the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office as Rosa Maria Falla, 23; Jonathan Jade Mouton, 21; and Ruvin Abel Vasquez, 22, all of Daly City. Falla is believed to have been dating Diaz.
During the accident, the Mustang crashed into a Honda, sending it through a cement wall at the Cyprus Lawn cemetery, according to KTVU.com. The driver of that vehicle was not seriously injured.
