Alleged drunk driver kills motorcyclist on Interstate 8

Posted: Updated:
The CHP reported that a van driven by an allegedly drunken driver at over 100 miles an hour went through the intersection at the end of Interstate 8, and ran over and killed a motorcyclist.

The motorcyclist was traveling west on his 2003 Yamaha V approaching Sunset Cliffs Boulevard when it was struck from behind by a 1998 Chevy Astro van traveling above 100 mph. The motorcyclist died at the scene, a California Highway Patrol dispatcher said.

The Medical Examiner's Office identified the motorcyclist as Eric Sean Enockson, 36, of San Diego.

The driver ran from the scene, but was later located at the 4600 block of West Point Loma Boulevard and arrested by San Diego police officers. Claudia Herrera, 27, was booked at Las Colinas Detention Center on suspicion of drunken driving, hit and run and vehicular manslaughter.

Herrera is scheduled at Central Division Felony Arraignment in downtown San Diego at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, according to jail records.
