A 28-year-old man was charged Tuesday with an alcohol-fueled, three-car crash in Anaheim that killed a Los Angeles man.
Arturo Jerson GomezRamirez of Anaheim was charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury, and driving under the influence with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit of .08 or more causing injury, all felonies, with sentencing enhancements for inflicting great bodily injury.
He was also charged with a misdemeanor count of driving without a valid driver’s license.
GomezRamirez is accused of killing 49-year-old Luis Cuara in Sunday’s crash, according to Sgt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department.
GomezRamirez was behind the wheel of a Nissan Murano going westbound on Ball Road when he ran a red light at Magnolia just after 1:50 a.m. Sunday, Carringer said.
The Murano slammed into a 2016 Honda Accord containing four men, including Cuara, who was in the backseat, Carringer said. Three other men — all 30 years old — were rushed to area hospitals to be treated for minor injuries.
A Toyota Camry stopped at the red light facing Magnolia was also slightly damaged but with no resulting injuries in the crash, Carringer said.
