January 26, 2017 (San Diego) – Campo resident Ryan Gary Renz, 24, has been arrested for murder and suspicion of driving under the influence after the Jetta vehicle he was driving flipped over last night at 6:55 p.m., killing two passengers.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer J.T. Neibert, the man was traveling south at a high rate of speed on Buckman Springs Road at Lake Morena when “due to his level of intoxication, he failed to negotiate the left curve and veered off the roadway.”

The vehicle struck a large oak tree on the west side of the road, causing the car to overturn. The right rear passenger, a 23-year-old man from Campo, was ejected from the vehicle and died.  A passenger in the right front seat, 26, also from Campo, was trapped in the vehicle and also died at the scene.

Renz was treated for minor injuries and booked into San Diego County Jail.
