Annapolis Man Pleads Guilty To DUI In Fatal Crash

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A driver who struck and killed a stranded motorist has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence.

Jose Jesus Garcia-Salmoran, 30, of Annapolis entered the plea Tuesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. He faces up to a year in jail at sentencing Jan. 7.

The July 2011 crash killed Jasmine Owens, 20, of Upper Marlboro. According to a statement of facts, Owens’ car had hit a guardrail on Route 50 and was left disabled in the right lane.
