Man Sentenced For Role In Deadly Crash


Jonathan Guzman was sentenced to more than six years in prison by Washington County Judge Ricardo Menchaca.

On April 19, 2019, Guzman pleaded guilty to Second-Degree Manslaughter and Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants. Deputy District Attorney Nadya Martin prosecuted the case against Guzman.

On July 28, 2018, Guzman was intoxicated and driving at speeds approaching 100 miles per hour when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a light pole along Beaverton Hillsdale Highway. The crash killed his passenger, the mother of three children. Guzman was taken to the hospital and was found to have a blood alcohol level of .161, more than twice the legal limit. Several beer cans were also found near the crash site.

Guzman has been transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentence.
