Arcadia Man Sentenced to 1 Year in Jail for Crosswalk Death of Alice Zhang

Bowen Du, 20, of Arcadia was sentenced in the crosswalk death of an Arcadia teen sentenced Tuesday to one year in county jail.

Du was driving a Lexus sedan when the car struck and killed Zhang – an only child – and seriously injured her friend in April as the two young women crossed the street at the 600 block of West Duarte Road in Arcadia.

Arcadia police officers have said the windshield of the car Du was driving was “excessively dirty” and that, combined with the glaring setting sun, played a significant part in the accident.

Before making the plea deal, Du, a Private First Class in the U.S. Army Reserve, pleaded not guilty in August to a felony vehicular manslaughter charge with gross negligence and denied a special enhancement of serious injury involving Zhang’s friend, Priyanka Patel.
