A San Bernardino County man pleaded no contest today to charges stemming from a DUI crash that killed a 1-year-old girl and her father on the Pomona (60) Freeway in Diamond Bar in 2017. Hans T. Guloy, also known as Hans Timothy Cruz Guloy, is due back in a Pomona courtroom for sentencing April 19 in connection with his plea to all six charges against him, according to Ricardo Santiago with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

 It was not immediately clear what sentence Guloy could face or whether he is currently in custody. The case against Guloy was filed on the one-year anniversary of the Nov. 26, 2017, crash near Diamond Bar Boulevard on the 60 Freeway that fatally injured Abraham Franco, 29, of Pomona, and his daughter, Abby, and seriously injured the girl's mother.

  The 29-year-old Chino Hills man was charged with  two felony counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and one count each of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage causing injury, driving with a 0.08 percent blood-alcohol content causing injury, hit-and-run driving resulting in death or serious injury to another person and perjury by declaration, according to the District Attorney's Office. The charges also included allegations that Guloy fled from the scene of the crime and caused great bodily injury and/or death to more than one victim -- allegations Guloy admitted in connection with his plea, according to Santiago.

  Guloy was driving under the influence when he crashed into the vehicle containing the couple and their three children, according to evidence presented at a July 2019 hearing in which he was ordered to stand trial. The victims' vehicle smashed into the center divider, and it was subsequently struck by another vehicle. Guloy fled from the scene of the crash and later told police that his vehicle had been stolen, according to the District Attorney's Office.
