An arrest has been made in a Temecula crash that left an elderly couple dead.
Christopher Keith Bostic, 45, of Temecula, was arrested Sunday at Loma Linda University Medical Center on suspicion of two counts of felony vehicular manslaughter and one count of felony hit and run causing injuries in the Oct. 20 crash, a sheriff's official said Monday.
Amar Jain, 74, and Cheryl Jain, 66, of Yorba Linda were both pronounced dead at the scene of the Oct. 20 crash at Rancho California Road and Jefferson Avenue.
Bostic, who suffered major injuries in the crash, was transported Sunday from LLUMC in Loma Linda to the Riverside County Regional Medical Center jail ward, Temecula police Sgt. John Magnan said Monday in a news release.
Bostic was being held on $140,000 bail, jail records showed.
At about 3 p.m. Oct. 20, Bostic was allegedly driving a 2006 Hyundai westbound on Rancho California when he is suspected of entering the intersection at Jefferson against a red light, Magnan said.
Bostic allegedly struck a 2008 Hondra CRV driven by the Jains, who were making a left-hand turn to travel east on Rancho California, Magnan said.
The Hyundai and the Honda CRV were found resting on their wheels in the eastbound lanes of Rancho California Road, Magnan said.
"This investigation is still ongoing and alcohol and/or drugs do not appear to have been a factor in this collision," Magnan said.
Anyone with information that would assist the officers investigating this collision was encouraged to call the Temecula Police Department's Traffic Division at 951-696-3000.
