Prosecutors have charged a West Valley City man with negligently killing another man in a crash.
Emanuel A. Garcia, 27, was charged on Thursday with negligent homicide and driving on a suspended or revoked license, which are misdemeanors, in 3rd District Court. The homicide charge carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail, and the second charge a three-month stint.
On June 27, 62-year-old Denis Stuhff was on Redwood Road, waiting in a left turn lane to get onto Temple Lane (10200 South). But Garcia rear-ended Stuhff, pushing him into the intersection where Stuhff's Ford Taurus was hit by a Ford F350, according to the charges. He later died at the hospital from his injuries.
