Approximately one year after two teenagers were killed in a Hacienda Heights car accident, the driver who caused the crash has pleaded not guilty. The 68-year-old man pleaded not guilty to both counts of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.
According to police, the man was speeding in his Lexus when he lost control of his vehicle on an off ramp. As a result, the car subsequently crashed into a Toyota truck, cutting it in half. As a result of the accident, the two people in the truck, both 18-years-old, were killed.
