Man pleads no contest in fatal hit-and-run of 101-year-old in L.A.

A man pleaded no contest Tuesday to fatally running over a 101-year-old man in Los Angeles last year and attempting to flee the scene. About 6 a.m. on Oct. 1, 2014, Avalos was driving a van when he ran over Jose Noriega, who was walking across the street in a crosswalk. Avalos fled the scene but was tracked down by two drivers: one who blocked Avalos’ path, another who snatched his keys. Moments before his trial was to begin at a downtown Los Angeles courtroom, Ricardo Avalos, 41, entered his plea to a felony count of hit-and-run resulting in death and a misdemeanor count of vehicular manslaughter. Avalos was sentenced to three years in state prison.
