SAN JOSE, CA — A suspected drunk driver crashed an SUV in San Jose, killing four passengers, authorities said.

California Highway Patrol officer Ross Lee said the crash happened around 10:20 p.m. on the highway’s southbound lanes, just south of Cottle Road and involved a 2005 Dodge Durango.

The 2005 Dodge Durango was speeding when the driver, Rabbi Kumar Khanna, lost control and crashed on State Route 85 on the night of May 23, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The SUV rolled over several times.

A 25-year-old man and two 26-year-old men died at the scene and a 25-year-old woman died at the hospital, according to the CHP.

A 24-year-old man was hospitalized but his injuries weren’t considered life-threatening, authorities said.

“Two individuals were ejected out of this vehicle. It hasn’t been determined if a seat belt was worn, or worn correctly,” CHP Officer Mike Sakamoto told.

Khanna, 26, of San Jose, was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to the CHP.

He could face charges of vehicular manslaughter.
