VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): After taking the life of a 27-year-old Hesperia woman in a July 30th head-on collision allegedly due to driving under the influence Christopher Nash, 31, plead not guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter.
Nash, who has two prior misdemeanor DUI charges appeared at the Victorville Superior Court on the morning of Monday, August 10th.
According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, it was determined that Nash was traveling southbound on Amargosa Road in a white GMC truck at about 4:30 a.m. on July 30th. The truck driven by Nash, for unknown reasons, crossed over the double yellow lines into oncoming northbound traffic. The Kia Forte, driven by Oak Hills resident, Andrea Anderson was traveling northbound. The Kia Forte was hit head on by the GMC truck causing fatal injuries to Anderson, who was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Nash was flown to Loma Linda Medical Center where he received treatment for his injuries and was subsequently booked into West Valley Detention Center for vehicular manslaughter. Court records show that Nash was convicted for driving under the influence in April 2014 and again on July 2014. Nash requested a modification to his probation in May 2015, but the modification was not granted and the three-year probation was continued.
He is set to appear back in court for a pre-preliminary hearing on August 18th and is at the West Valley Detention Center in lieu of $500,000.
