Driver's reckless behavior continued after crash

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A warrant obtained by 10News revealed disturbing new details about a deadly Father's Day crash.

David Olvera is charged with DUI, manslaughter and hit-and-run stemming from the crash that happened early on June 17.

Police say Olvera was driving south on I-15, just north of Friars Road, when he lost control and crashed into the concrete divider wall. Police say he got out of his car and then hid on the side of the road.

As he hid, four other cars hit his abandoned car. One of the drivers, Greg Scott, died in the crash.

The warrant says Olvera heard the other cars crash, but remained hidden and didn't call 911.

It also says that his blood-alcohol content was .199 when police arrested him the next morning, six hours after the crash.

Scott's family talked to 10News in June and said he was a loving father of two, who had married his high school sweetheart. He was driving home from a late night hockey practice when the crash happened.

A GoFundMe account is set up for the family.

Olvera pleaded not guilty in his initial court appearance on June 21. He's still in jail on a $1,000,000 bond and is due back in court August 28.

This is his 3rd DUI arrest in the last 10 years. If he's convicted, Olvera could face 15 years to life in prison.
