Man gets 6 years in prison for alcohol-fueled crash in Anaheim that killed LA man

A 29-year-old man pleaded guilty Friday, Dec. 23 and was immediately sentenced to six years in prison for an alcohol-fueled, three-car crash in Anaheim that killed a Los Angeles man.

Arturo Jerson GomezRamirez of Anaheim pleaded guilty to 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 0.08 or more causing injury. He also admitted sentencing enhancements for inflicting great bodily injury and a misdemeanor count of driving without a valid driver’s license.

GomezRamirez killed 49-year-old Luis Cuara in the Dec. 5, 2021, crash, according to Lt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department.

The defendant accepted a plea deal from Orange County Superior Court Judge Gassia Apkarian. GomezRamirez has 440 days credit for time spent behind bars awaiting trial.

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., 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 taken 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.

On Thursday, Dec. 22, the same intersection was the site of a massive crash that killed a woman and injured 10 people. The 36-year-old driver accused of causing that chain-reaction collision also was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
