An alleged drunk driver who caused a three-car crash Sunday on Fremont Avenue faces DUI felony charges, NBC Los Angeles reports. Ismael Soto, 28, could be sentenced to more than 20 years in prison if convicted.
Soto allegedly crashed into two parked vans on Fremont near Poplar Avenue, sending one into a group of pedestrians looking at holiday lights and hurting 15 people including himself, according to the Pasadena Star-News. Alhambra police updated the number of victims from 13 to 15 on Tuesday.
Soto's license was suspended before the crash for previous DUI convictions, according to NBC Los Angeles.
