UPDATE: The dead woman was identified as Mardell Nash, 63, of Madera. (An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that Nash was a man.)
A woman died in Visalia after her car was hit by an alleged drunk driver, sending it into an embankment just after midnight Saturday, said California Highway Patrol Sgt. Corben Whitney.
The woman was sitting in her vehicle, parked on the shoulder of Highway 198 near Lover’s Lane, when she was struck by another car. The woman’s car flipped and went down an embankment, killing her, Whitney said.
Police arrested Alejandro Precido, 27, of Visalia, on suspicion of DUI.
No one else was in either vehicle, Whitney said.
The woman’s identity has not been released pending the notification of family.
