Guilty plea in Albuquerque street racing crash that injured pedestrians

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - A man has pleaded guilty to a charge stemming from a crash in Albuquerque in July, KRQE reports.

18-year-old Abraham Corral-Alvarez was arrested following the incident that occurred at a Taco Bus food truck on Central Avenue near 47th Street. Albuquerque police said he was street racing with two other cars when he struck a divider along a bus lane.  The impact caused the car to go off the roadway, where it hit four bystanders waiting at the food truck. Three of the victims were hospitalized.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, Corral-Alvarez pleaded guilty to great bodily injury by vehicle.   He was sentenced to three years of supervised probation.  Should any additional information come to light, our Albuquerque car accident lawyer will update this news blog.

The incident was originally investigated as a drunk driving crash, but a blood draw showed Corral-Alvarez was not under the influence of any substance during the crash. Corral-Alvarez is facing up to three years of supervised probation.
