HUNTINGTON BEACH (CNS) - A 24-year-old man arrested in connection with a collision that killed a man in Huntington Beach has posted bail, according to records obtained Monday.

Jyles Timothy Sellers of Huntington Beach posted bail and was released Sunday, according to jail records. Sellers was arrested Friday following the crash that killed 55-year-old Arturo Becerril Rodriguez of Huntington Beach.

Police responded about 9:30 p.m. Friday to the crash at Edinger Avenue east of Edwards Street, police said.

Rodriguez, who was behind the wheel of a 2010 Toyota Prius, was rushed to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

Sellers, who was driving a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, allegedly ran away from the collision but was arrested a short time later, police said.

Rodriguez was westbound on Edinger just east of Edwards when the Silverado rear-ended the Prius, police said. Police alleged that Sellers was driving too fast and was arrested and booked on suspicion of driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter.
