SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities released the name Wednesday of a 49-year-old woman killed last weekend in a suspected DUI motorcycle crash in Rancho Santa Fe.
Stephanie England of Escondido was a passenger on a three-wheeled Harley-Davidson that veered off a curving stretch of Via de Fortuna shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, according to the California Highway Patrol and county Medical Examiner's Office.
The cycle, which was being driven by England's live-in fiance, 58-year-old William Jimenez, rolled down an embankment near El Camino del Norte and crashed into several trees and a wooden residential fence, CHP public-affairs Officer Jim Bettencourt said.
England wound up pinned underneath the three-wheeler and died of a fractured neck at the scene, the medical examiner reported.
Jimenez was arrested on suspicion of felony drunken driving and taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla for treatment of serious injuries, Bettencourt said. He was expected to survive, the officer said.
