The incident happened when Tommy Le, 22-years-old, was driving a white Subaru Outback with Lim as his passenger on the southbound 5 Freeway in Tustin.

At the same time, Robinson was driving a 2015 Toyota Prius, traveling north on the southbound 5 Freeway transition to the southbound 55 Freeway. Robinson’s Toyota slammed head-on into the Subaru, killing Lim and seriously injuring Le, who sustained a broken right leg and right hand.

The charges were issued on Tuesday and are all felonies. Robinson is also looking at possible sentencing enhancements.

Robinson’s blood-alcohol content after the collision was .17, which is more than twice the legal limit of .08. It would take about 9 to 10 alcoholic beverages to reach a BA level of .17 as you can see in the chart linked here.

According to Ms. Lim’s LinkedIn bio she was a nursing student at Mount St. Mary’s University.
