A Huntington Beach man was convicted Thursday of driving on a suspended license, hitting another driver and causing the victim severe injuries, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.
Oscar Paz, 32, was found guilty of one felony count of hit-and-run, causing permanent injury, prosecutors said. He faces a maximum of four years in state prison at his sentencing, which is scheduled on Sept. 21, according to prosecutors.
The victim suffered brain and spinal injuries, can't walk or talk and is in constant pain, prosecutors said. He was in a critical condition at UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange for several weeks following the accident.
