A 20-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter following a case of lover's revenge gone very, very wrong. A gray Honda Civic was seen driving back and forth down a street in Ontario early Sunday morning; the driver—identified as Tanya Quintero—and two passengers kept stopping the car to throw trash on the front lawn belonging to one of the passenger's ex-boyfriends, police said.Neighbors witnessed the car driving back and forth down South Laurel Avenue, blasting loud music. Ontario police Sgt. Jeff Higbee told City News Service that Darryl Sevesind, one of the neighbors on the block, came out of his house to confront the car when he was struck by the driver making a U-turn. Higbee said Quintero then allegedly fled the scene. Sevesind, 24, was found dead in his driveway by police who responded to the hit-and-run call, said Higbee.

Police then found the suspected Civic parked a short distance away in front of a house, where the passengers and Quintero were hanging out inside. Quintero was arrested on charges of vehicular manslaughter and hit-and-run resulting in death, and was booked at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.

Update 10/12, 11:55 a.m.: A GoFundMe account has been set up for Sevesind's family and his two-year-old son.
