Drunk Driving Assault Charges

The law confounds me.  The setting is present day, Los Angeles, California.  A man is driving a vehicle while intoxicated with his boyfriend in the passenger seat.  Another vehicle hits their car on the passenger side severely injuring the boyfriend.  The accident is the drunk man's fault.  Besides the obvious having his license taken away, what would be the legal consequences for the man who had been drunk driving?  I have googled and wiki-ed 'drunk driving', 'DUI assault' and 'vehicular manslaughter' to no avail.  Any help appreciated.
