SAN DIEGO (AP) - A well-known surfer has been critically injured
and his passenger killed in a San Diego car accident.
San Diego County Sheriff's Sgt. Randy Webb says 51-year-old Milton Willis was driving at 65 mph in a 25 mph zone on Coast Boulevard early Friday when he lost control of the car and crashed into tree and a parked car.
The passenger, 24-year-old Bradley James Dillahunty of Laguna Niguel, died.
Willis was hospitalized in critical condition.
Webb says initial evidence indicates alcohol was a major factor in the accident.
Willis runs a surfing camp in Del Mar with his twin brother, Michael.
The men made a name for themselves surfing big waves in California and Hawaii.
