John, Sacramento

A: Antonio Reddick, whose passengers died in a 2013 crash on Auburn Boulevard, was convicted in May of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

His sentencing was scheduled for Sept. 1 but has been continued to Oct. 27, according to Sacramento Superior Court records available online.

Jurors also found Reddick, 34, guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs with great bodily injury and hit-and-run driving.

Reddick’s passengers, Cherion Robinson and Gregory Hunt, died in the Nov. 4, 2013, crash, which followed a hit-and-run incident in the Foothill Farms area. Reddick was stopped at a light at Madison and Date avenues, when he suddenly drove into a car that was stopped next to him.

He then drove off at speeds of 80 to 90 mph, running red lights before crashing into a car that was traveling through an intersection on a green light. The force of the collision sent Reddick’s car across several lanes and into a tree along Auburn Boulevard near the Interstate 80 offramp, fatally injuring his passengers, according to stories in The Sacramento Bee. The driver of the car Reddick hit in the intersection suffered serious injuries.

Reddick also was injured and transported to a hospital. A blood analysis showed he had a blood alcohol content of 0.09 percent along with the presence of marijuana and methamphetamine, according to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.
