A 37-year-old man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for a DUI crash that killed a woman as she was walking to work at Disney in Burbank.
Stergios Antonios Economos of Burbank ran a red light on September 7, 2017, and struck and killed Michelle Ann Landes, 64, at a crosswalk near Alameda Avenue and Lincoln Street, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The collision happened around 9 a.m. outside a gate on the Walt Disney Studios lot. ABC7 News reported.
His car careened into three other vehicles after striking Landes. She was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead there.
He entered a no contest plea on February 26, 2018, to one count each of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and drove under the influence of a drug causing injury. He entered an open plea, meaning there was no sentence negotiated with the DA’s Office.
