Fremont Woman Accused Of Providing Alcohol To Teens At House Party Before Deadly DUI Crash

FREMONT (CBS SF) -- A Fremont woman who police say provided alcohol to teenagers during a party at her house last year before a DUI wreck that killed a teenage passenger has been arrested, police said.

42-year-old Tabassum Yousuf was arrested  at her home on Tuesday and charged with one count of felony involuntary manslaughter and two counts of misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to Fremont Police.

On October 27, 2013, three Fremont teens were involved in a DUI crash on Durham Road where a 17-year-old male passenger died of his injuries. The 17-year-old male driver was arrested at the time and later convicted of vehicular manslaughter and felony drunk driving.

Fremont Police said an ongoing investigation involving witness statements, financial records and other evidence led them to conclude Yousuf had bought the liquor and provided it to the teens involved in the crash during a large party at her home.

Yousuf was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at Fremont Superior Courthouse.
