LOS ANGELES, CA – A suspected drunken driver is facing murder charges after crashing into a taco truck crowd in East Los Angeles, killing two people.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office says 37-year-old Elba Jimenez is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on two counts of murder, DUI, evading an officer and other charges.

She remains jailed on $2 million bail.

Authorities say the Upland woman was driving erratically on Interstate 5 Saturday night and fled from California Highway Patrol officers.

After a 100-mph chase, authorities say the Camry left the freeway, ran a red light, hit a dip, went airborne and plowed into a taco truck and surrounding crowd.

Two women died and three other people were injured.
