A Ventura County man has been charged with gross vehicular homicide while intoxicated, as well as three other counts stemming from a fatal Santa Ynez Valley crash which left a man dead.
The CHP says Jose Luis Dias failed to yield to oncoming traffic while making a turn at the intersection of Highway 154, and 246 last Friday, and hit a motorcycle driven by Joseph Corcoran. The Northern California man suffered fatal injuries.
Diaz fled the scene, but turned himself in to Ventura Police this week. Santa Barbara County prosecutors say Diaz were under the influence at the time of the fatal crash.
