Woman drives for mile with body lodged in car

Police in California say a suspected drunk driver struck and killed a man, then drove for a mile with his body lodged in the car.

Twenty-nine-year-old Esteysi Sanchez of Oceanside was arrested Monday morning for vehicular manslaughter. She's jailed and it's unclear whether she has a lawyer.

Police say that around 6:30 a.m., Sanchez hit a man on a sidewalk.  The man's body went through the windshield and ended up on the front passenger seat but his severed leg crashed through the back window and landed on the trunk.

The car came to a stop in fron of Edgar Esparza's house.

"I just stood there and I was in shock and I saw like the leg," Esparza said.

Police say Sanchez drove about a mile, parked in a cul-de-sac and walked away. She was arrested a short time later.

The victim's name hasn't been released.  He is believed to be a transient who was walking to a soup kitchen.

Police say that Sanchez appears to have been under the influence of alcohol.  She faces felony hit and run and gross vehicular manslaughter charges.
