Trial For Accused Hit-Run Couple
Claudia Cabrera and Josue Luna, the thirtysomething married couple accused of a horrific hit-and-run accident outside USC last spring, have been ordered to stand trial September 29, according to City News Service. Cabrera was allegedly behind the wheel in the early morning hours of Sunday, March 29, when her car sped through a red light and into a crosswalk, killing 18-year-old university student Adrianna Bachan and seriously injuring Bachan's friend, Marcus Garfinkle, 19, also a USC student. Eyewitnesses reported seeing a passenger, allegedly Luna, pull Garfinkle out of the shattered windshield, then toss him onto the street, before the couple drove off.
Cabrera and Luna are both in county jail in lieu of $1 million bond apiece; Cabrera was arrested days after the accident while Luna allegedly left the country and was arrested when he attempted to re-enter the U.S. City News Service also reports that, according to testimony from Cabrera's sister, the couple had earlier been drinking at a San Fernando Valley party and had become angered about comments made about the Kardashian sisters.
