OAKLAND — Alameda County prosecutors have filed manslaughter and drunk driving charges against a San Jose man who police identified as the driver who crashed and killed two women in a Thanksgiving weekend crash last year, court records show.

Robert Jacob Espinoza, 26, was charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter and three drunk driving counts, all felonies, in connection with the Nov. 28 crash. The victims were identified as Laura Pereira, who was killed in the crash, and Ann Marie Carpaneto, who died from her injuries roughly two weeks later.

Police said at the time that Espinoza was driving a Tesla SUV on Interstate 880 in Union City, when he struck a Volkswagen that was parked in the shoulder near Whipple Road. The collision occurred around 3 a.m.
