Emily Dominguez Arrested for DUI after Fatal Crash on Sierra Highway in Acton
ACTON, CA (March 30, 2021) – A passenger who died in a DUI crash Wednesday evening in Acton has been identified.
He was 20-year-old Trevor Calhoun of Canyon Country, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
The accident happened around 7:45 p.m. March 24 on Sierra Highway north of Mountain Spring Road.
CHP officials said 19-year-old Emily Dominguez of Santa Clarita was driving a Toyota Corolla when she veered onto the dirt shoulder and lost control. The Toyota then traveled across lanes and was struck on the passenger side by a Toyota MR2 going northbound.
As a result, Calhoun – a passenger in the Corolla – sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene. Calhoun’s loved ones set up a GoFundMe to raise funds for a service and celebration of life.
Dominguez sustained minor injuries and was taken to a hospital. She was later arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
The driver of the MR2, a 59-year-old Palmdale man, also sustained minor injuries.
An investigation is ongoing.
