Trucker To Get At Least 7 Years In Crash That Killed Father, Daughter

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A big rig driver was tentatively sentenced Thursday to seven years and four months in prison for causing an accident that killed a man and his daughter in 2009.

Marcos Costa, 46, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and reckless driving in July.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports.

Costa lost control of his 18-wheeler and plowed through Angeles Crest Highway and Foothill Boulevard. The truck smashed into cross traffic, as well as a building on Foothill Boulevard.

Angelina Posca, 12, and her father, Angel Posca, were both killed in the crash.

Prosecutors want Costa to get the maximum sentence of nine years, but a judge says he will make his final ruling after hearing statements from the victims’ family.
