Lisa Spoors Admits Guilt in Fatal DUI Crash

In Fresno, California, an individual has confessed to charges relating to a fatal accident that resulted in the death of a Hoover High School student. The Fresno County District Attorney’s office reported that the individual was driving while intoxicated when the accident occurred.

Local police responded to the scene at Hoover High School after receiving a report of a student hit by a vehicle on October 4, 2022, around 6 p.m. The victim, Rashad Al-Hakim Jr., was then transported to a nearby hospital, where he passed away one week later.

Officials indicated that the accused driver, Lisa Ellen Spoors, fled the scene without checking on Rashad. It was only around 20 minutes later when Spoors contacted the police department’s dispatch center, reporting that she had hit something on the road but wasn’t sure what it was. Police officers met with Spoors, who underwent a sobriety test in a nearby parking lot.

Spoors appeared in the Fresno County Superior Court for a preliminary hearing on March 2, 2022. She was charged over two months after the accident with DUI and murder before being held in the Fresno County Jail in December. After a hearing on January 18, her bail was reduced, and Spoors was released the following day after posting bond.

On Wednesday, the District Attorney’s office announced that Spoors pleaded guilty to felony counts of vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident, resulting in grave harm or death. In response to her guilty plea and given the evidence against her, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the murder and DUI causing injury charges. The charges to which Spoors admitted have a maximum cumulative sentence of five years in state prison.

Spoors is now scheduled for sentencing on April 10.
