A man who left the scene of a crash and let a passenger die has been sentenced to 10 years in state prison.

The crash happened in October of 2020.

Montes left the scene. His passenger, Alex Pratt, was found submerged in the car and pronounced dead on scene.

He pled to vehicular homicide and fleeing and eluding. His 10-year prison sentence will be followed by five years of state probation.
