26-year-old Juan Manuel Juarez Reyes pleaded guilty to several charges stemming from a 2007 crash on Highway 105 that killed 22-year-old Andrew Newell.

 

Reyes pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, inflicting serious injury and misdemeanor driving while impaired.

 

Reyes was sentenced to a minimum of 15 years and four months to a maximum of 20 years and nine months in prison.

 

Reyes was crashed a 2000 Ford Explorer into the rear of a 2002 Lexus SUV, in which Newell was riding, just before 11 p.m. on Friday, November 23, 2007.

 

The Lexus had stopped to turn left on Poplar Hill Road when Reye’s Explorer crashed into Newell’s vehicle.  The impact pushed the Lexus over 200 feet into a Watauga County patrol vehicle.

 

In 2007, Reyes was charged with driving while impaired, driving without an operator’s license and three felony counts of causing serious injury with a motor vehicle.
