Police believe Ramirez was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision, according to Montiel.

All lanes of Middlefield Road at Pacific Avenue were closed for about two-and-a-half hours.
The collision was under investigation and any witnesses are asked to call CHP Officer T.J. Taylor (650) 369-6261.
