A suspected drunken driver hit and killed a motorist in St. Paul early Wednesday, authorities said.
The wreck occurred about 1:30 a.m. south of the St. Paul Downtown Airport near Concord and Page streets, according to police.
Jose O. Vasquez Guillen, 19, of St. Paul, was driving a Honda southeast on Concord that hit a Saturn as it was leaving a driveway to head northwest onto Concord, said Sgt. Mike Ernster.
Fire paramedics arrived and freed a man from behind the wheel of the Saturn and treated him for his injuries, but he died at the scene, Ernster said. His identity has not been released.
Vasquez Guillen was taken to Regions Hospital with noncritical injuries, released and jailed on suspicion of criminal vehicular homicide in connection with being intoxicated, Ernster said.
