Gabriel Perez-Guiterez Charged for Death of West Jordan EMT

posted July 18, 2011 | by

As reported by The Salt Lake Tribune, Gabriel Perez-Guiterez of Salt Lake City was charged with homicide on Wednesday, June 29th in the Third District Court, for allegedly ramming his car into several stopped vehicles around 6 am at a Taylorsville intersection while drunk. This accident resulted in the death of Jonathan Bowers, a West Jordan EMT with GoldCross Ambulance.

Court documents state that Perez-Guiterez was driving approximately 75 mph in a 40-mph zone and had  a blood alcohol content of .11, with traces of marijuana in his system. Currently Perez-Guiterez is being charged with second-degree felony criminal homicide, third-degree felony leaving the scene of an accident, two class A misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence, a misdemeanor charge of driving with a measurable amount of marijuana in his system, driving on a suspended license and speeding.

My deepest condolences go out to Jonathan Bowers’ family. This tragic and senseless accident took the life of a young man who had dedicated his life to saving the lives of strangers. His career as an EMT was cut short by the carelessness of Perez-Guiterez.
