Trucker arrested in deadly La Canada crash

Authorities have arrested the driver of a big rig that crashed into several vehicles in La Cañada Flintridge before slamming into a bookstore, killing a 12-year-old girl and her father and injuring several others.

Marcos Costa, 43, was taken into custody on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter, said Lt. Greg Sisneros of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Sisneros did not know where Costa lived but said he was a licensed Florida truck driver.
