A Yuba city man who was involved in a fatal crash at the Oceano Dunes pleads not guilty to vehicular manslaughter. 35-year-old Oscar Renteria Corchado entered the plea in San Luis Obispo superior court yesterday. 37-year-old Shawn Joseph Imlig of Brentwood died in the crash. The sheriff’s department alleges Corchado was under the influence when he rode his side-by-side at a high rate of speed up a 30-foot dune and crashed into Imlig who was riding on the other side of the dune. That was back in June. Corchado is due back in court October 7th.
