Man Pleads No Contest To DUI Hit And Run Charges

Vincente Montes pleaded no contest yesterday in court to charges of hitting and killing two people while driving intoxicated on Highway 46. The August 17 accident claimed the lives of a couple from Bakersfield.
Montes faced two counts of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, and one count of hit and run causing death.
The CHP says Montes and a passenger ran from the scene, but were later arrested in Shandon. Montes will be sentenced in October. He faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
