OROVILLE, Calif. - The man accused in a drag race in Oroville that killed three, is being held in the Butte County Jail without bail.
Carlos Hill, 19, Will be back in court Wednesday to enter a plea. Hill is charged with 3 counts of manslaughter, one count of engaging in a speed contest resulting in injury and reckless driving causing injury with an enhancement of fleeing.
Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey said Hill was also driving without a valid license.
The crash happened Thursday, April 29, on Lincoln Boulevard and Baggett Marysville Road in Oroville.
Ramsey said even though Hill's car did not touch the Jeep Grand Cherokee that crashed, there couldn't have been a race without Hill.
Three died in the Jeep, driver, Anthony Le Jon Gaston, his daughter, 2, and a passenger. Le Jon Gaston's other daughter, 4, received several broken bones and is still in the hospital.
