A Canyon Country man who had methamphetamine in his system when he caused a crash that killed a college student in Santa Clarita on Valentine’s Day last year pleaded guilty Friday and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Superior Court Judge Hilleri Merritt immediately sentenced 28-year-old Alexus Chad Corral following his plea to one count of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, according to Deputy District Attorney Jeffrey Illions.

Dylan Tyler Zimmerman, a 21-year-old Valencia High School graduate and architecture student at College of the Canyons, was fatally injured in the Feb. 14, 2014, crash at Copperhill and Copperstone drives.

A blood test determined that Corral had used meth prior to the crash, according to the prosecutor.
