WEST COVINA – A 23-year-old San Bernardino man was convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol killing one and seriously injuring another.
The man identified as Raymond Simon Alvarado was driving under the influence in West Covina on December 30, 2014, when he ran a red light. Alvarado crashed into another vehicle causing significant injuries to the two occupants.
Alvarado fled the scene but was located and arrested shortly after. Over a week later, on January 8, 2015, the 31-year-old passenger from the other vehicle died as a result of her injuries.
On Tuesday, July 26, 2016, Alvarado pleaded no contest to felony vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. He also admitted to the special circumstance allegations that he fled the scene of the crime, committed a DUI causing injury and that he personally inflicted great bodily injury during the commission of the crime.
Alvarado is due back at the Pomona Superior Court on Thursday for sentencing where he is expected to be sentenced to 17 years in prison.
