A Bakersfield man has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after he allegedly caused a car crash early Thursday morning that killed his passenger on northbound Highway 101 in Pismo Beach.

The name of the 21-year-old Bakersfield man killed in the crash south of Spyglass Drive has not yet been released

The driver, 21-year-old Joshua Hurt, was set to be booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail after he was medically cleared for his moderate injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers said that Hurt was driving a 1991 Acura Integra at an unknown speed about 4:30 a.m. when the car veered off the roadway due to Hurt’s intoxication.

The Integra crashed into the concrete center divider wall before it overturned.
