The accident happened just after 12:30 a.m., Jan. 26, on Bidwell Avenue in west Chico.
20-year-old Austin Silver was a passenger in the vehicle and died at the scene.

19-year-old Bryant Mata was the other passenger in the car, he was taken to the hospital with major injuries, but he died a couple days later.
Ramsey said that Arriaga-Rodriguez's has been transported from Enloe Medical Center to a Bay Area hospital for further treatment. He also said that Arriaga-Rodriguez is in a comatose state and relies on a breathing tube to survive.
“We wouldn't be bringing any sort of action anytime soon by virtue of the fact that we are waiting to see what his [Arriaga-Rodriguez] condition is,” said Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey.
If Arriaga-Rodriguez's recovers from his injuries depending on his condition he could face charges of felony vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.
