Jyles Timothy Sellers, a 24-year-old man from Huntington Beach, was arrested in connection with a collision that killed 55-year-old Arturo Becerril Rodriguez, also of Huntington Beach.

Sellers posted bail after the arrest and he was released on Sunday. Sellers was arrested Friday following the fatal DUI crash, which happened at about 9:30 p.m., at Edinger Avenue east of Edwards Street, according to the Huntington Beach Police Department.

Rodriguez was driving a 2010 Toyota Prius at the time of the accident. He was taken to an area hospital after the collision and was later pronounced dead.

Sellers was driving a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado when he slammed into Rodriguez’ Prius. Sellers allegedly ran away from the collision but then was arrested a short time later, according to the Huntington Beach Police Department.

Rodriguez was driving westbound on Edinger just east of Edwards when the Silverado rear-ended his Prius.

The police investigators allege that Sellers was driving too fast at the time of the collision. He was arrested and booked on suspicion of driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter.
