Stergios Economos previously pleaded no contest to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and driving under the influence of a drug causing injury for the Sept. 7 crash.

He also admitted to allegations of inflicting great bodily injury to two people.

Economos ran a red light near Alameda Avenue and Lincoln Street  about 9:10 a.m. and hit Michelle Ann Landes, 64, as she was heading to work. He then crashed into another car.

Landes, of Los Angeles, later died from her injuries at a hospital, and the driver of the second vehicle was also injured.
