Be careful out there!
An 18-year-old man was hauled to jail this weekend after he allegedly got drunk and crashed his car, killing another teen in the city's Bayview neighborhood Friday night.

Sgt. Michael Andraychak tells us that Daniel Lara, 18, and Eduardo Perez, 19, both San Francisco residents, were driving late Friday evening in Lara's gray Honda Civic when Lara allegedly hit another car near the intersection of Griffith Avenue and Thomas Street.

Perez was ejected from the car, and died at the scene.

Police say that Lara, who is believed to have been drinking, fled the scene on foot, but came back shortly after and was arrested on suspicion of DUI as well as felony hit-and-run.
