MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) - A 20-year-old Washington man who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide in a May 2014 head-on collision that killed three people has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (https://is.gd/xcU33b ) that Alfredo Navarro III of Mount Vernon entered his pleas and was sentenced Wednesday in Skagit County Superior Court. He had been due to go on trial in six days. Navarro has been jailed on $1 million bail for most of the past year.

Prosecutors said he was drunk and speeding last May 23 on Highway 20 east of Sedro-Woolley when his car collided with a sedan driven by 65-year-old Frederick Brand of Concrete. Brand died en route to a hospital.

Two of Navarro’s passengers, 23-year-old Nicole Washington of Sedro-Woolley and 21-year-old Megan Brown of Bellingham, died at the scene.

A third passenger was critically injured, as was Navarro.
