Pretrial set for man charged in teen’s death

June 11, 2009

The pretrial for the man who crashed into a 14-year-old bicyclist two years ago is scheduled to begin Friday morning at Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana.

Jeffrey Woods, who is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, was arrested following the Aug. 29, 2007, accident that killed eighth-grader Danny Oates. Woods allegedly ran into Danny while driving under the influence of Xanax and Vicodin and sending text messages.

The pretrial is set to begin at 9 a.m. Friday, with a jury trial to commence June 26.
