Esquivel was riding in a car with Natalie Zembrod, 22, who was driving north on Boat Club Road, said officer Brad Perez, police spokesman. When Zembrod came to a right-hand curve, she lost control of her car, skidding sideways and crashing into a southbound vehicle.
The southbound vehicle struck the passenger side of Zembrod’s vehicle, Perez said.
Zembrod was arrested on the intoxication manslaughter charge, a second-degree felony, according to a police report.
Police were still investigating Monday.
