Allegedly Drunk Pomona Man Who Caused Six-Car Crash And Vehicle Fire On I-10 East Found Drunk-Munching A Burger At Jack In The Box
Jack in the Box burgers: great comfort food for traffic guilt
Yesterday afternoon, a six-car pileup on the 10 freeway heading east was enough to make 68-year-old Antonio Holguin Sr. very, very hungry for some good 'n' greasy over-processed cow meat.
Holguin initiated a destructive domino-effect accident just after 3:30 near San Francisquito Avenue when he caused a Dodge Ram to smash into the back of a Honda, which then flew over the center divider into the westbound lanes, according to the CHP.
But it didn't end there:
The Honda smashed into a Mazda van, a Scion and a Jeep before wrapping up its spin across multiple lanes by bursting into flames.
Meanwhile, on the eastbound side of the 10, Holguin moseyed off the Puente Avenue exit and scoped the scene for some comfort food -- just as the driver of the Honda, 26-year-old Marconi Black of Los Angeles, pulled his wife and infant from the flames. (Luckily, everyone involved in the crash came out alive, though four were non-critically injured.)

Holguin then had the awesome idea to drunk dial his daughter while downing his last glorious meal before (what will hopefully be) a nice long vacation at the local pen. He was swiftly arrested by CHP officers on suspicion of drunk driving and other offenses.
