The driver in a fatal 2016 car crash has been offered a plea deal but he has yet to accept it. The deal calls for Carlos Belliard-Diaz to plead guilty to second-degree vehicular homicide. In exchange he would be sentenced to a 3 year prison sentence under the No Early Release Act and be required to pay $4,202 in restitution.

On the afternoon of June 7, 2016, Belliard-Diaz was driving south on Old Mine Road in Sandyston when he reportedly lost control of his vehicle and hit a tree. One of the three passengers in the car, Adonis Mojica-Sanchez, died at the scene.

The 25-year-old was allegedly speeding at the time of the crash and had not slept since the afternoon of June 6. His next court date is set for Feb. 4.
