A man was booked on sus­pi­cion of DUI and ve­hic­u­lar man­slaugh­ter early Satur­day, af­ter Fresno po­lice say he crashed into sev­eral parked ve­hi­cles, killing his pas­sen­ger.

Fresno Po­lice Lt. Bill Doo­ley said the deadly crash hap­pened around 12 a.m. at Ful­ton and Divisadero streets.

When of­fi­cers ar­rived they found the in­jured driver, de­scribed as a man in his 20s, walk­ing around the ve­hi­cle, hold­ing his head. A male pas­sen­ger was lo­cated on the floor­board of the car. He was un­re­spon­sive with no pulse.

Of­fi­cers per­formed CPR on the male and were able to re­gain a tem­po­rary pulse be­fore it faded. He was pro­nounced dead at the scene. His iden­tity was not re­leased.

Po­lice be­lieve the driver was trav­el­ing at a high rate of speed on Ful­ton when he struck five ve­hi­cles. The ve­hi­cles were un­oc­cu­pied and no one else was in­jured. Po­lice have not re­leased the driver’s name.
