VINEYARD (CBS13) – A night out at a Sacramento drive-in movie theater ended with an argument that resulted in a Stockton woman being hit-and-killed by a separate oncoming car and the man she was with in handcuffs for having been driving drunk, the California Highway Patrol said on Saturday.
Alberto Vazquez, 28, and his 26-year-old female passenger were driving southbound on Bradshaw Road heading back to Stockton after a night at the drive-in theater and alcohol consumption, and got into an argument shortly before 11:30 p.m. Friday near Carmencita Avenue, the CHP said.READ MORE: Protesters In Placerville Call For Noose To Remain In City's Logo
