Sentencing Set For Ventura County Driver In Car Crash Which Killed Threee

Posted on Tuesday, September 25, 2012 12:54am

Sentencing has been set for a Ventura County man who pled guilty to a charge he faced following the deaths of three passengers in a car he was driving.

Prosecutors say Alfredo Cortez was speeding when he lost control of the vehicle, and it crashed off Gonzales Road, near Patricia Street in Oxnard.

Jose Gonzales, Noel Camacho, and Marco Martinez all died in the 2009 accident. Neither alcohol, nor drugs were factors in the accident.

The Oxnard man faces up to a year in jail when he’s sentenced next month for manslaughter.
