Alex Corpus Moreno, 32, was charged with gross vehicular manslaughter and DUI causing injury for the fatal collision outside the San Jose-area bar. Police say Moreno was “extremely intoxicated and using cocaine at the bar,” which led to his removal from the establishment.
Authorities say he left the bar with a 24-year-old woman who told police she was performing oral sex on Moreno at the time of the crash. “At some point during the oral sex, she was pulled from the vehicle by security personnel and did not know what was happening. (She) did not recall the vehicle moving backward and did not recall the collision,” the report states.
According to witnesses, Moreno continued revving the engine even after the crash. Bystanders had to pull Moreno out of the car and shift the vehicle out of reverse to free the victims. However, 35-year-old Diana Prieto-Chacon had been “crushed” by the vehicle’s bumper.
Moreno remained in jail Thursday on a $275,000 bail with a court date set for June 23.
