RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA (CNS) - A 54-year-old San Clemente man was behind bars Monday on suspicion of a drug-fueled collision that killed a boy days away from his first birthday and seriously injured his parents.

Daniel Patrick Lenihan was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and was being held on $100,000 bail, according to jail records and the California Highway Patrol.

The collision occurred about 4:15 p.m. Sunday on Antonio Parkway just south of Oaktree in Rancho Santa Margarita, according to the CHP.

Lenihan was driving a 2016 Hyundai Sonata northbound on Antonio when he veered off the road and slammed into the family of three, a 34-year-old man, 31-year-old woman and their 11-month-old son, who was in a stroller, according to the CHP. The victim, whose birthday was April 7, was identified as Madden Robert Ohlwiler, according to the Orange County Coroner's Department.

The parents were rushed along with the baby to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, where the infant was pronounced dead, according to the CHP.
