A driver faces drunk driving and vehicular manslaughter charges after his car triggered a chain reaction crash early Sunday on Highway 101 near Burlingame that killed his wife and injured nine others.

The accident began at about 2:05 a.m. when the driver, later identified as 43-year-old Raul Padilla, lost control of his red Honda coupe and crashed into the highway’s center divider, according to CHP Officer Art Montiel.

When the car finally came to a stop, it was facing the wrong direction in a southbound lane of U.S. Highway 101 in the vicinity of Burlingame.

Moments after the Honda came to a halt, it collided with the front of a party bus with 18 people on board. Two other cars were also involved in the collision.
