Kiriko Masasi, 23, crashed his 1996 Lincoln into a guardrail, a traffic standard, and five vehicles. In the final crash, he hit three cars head-on and suffered life-threatening injuries. All of the crashes happened in just four miles.
Masasi has now been upgraded to fair condition. One other woman was hospitalized in the crashes, but she has been released from the hospital.
The State Patrol is still reconstructing the crashes to piece together what happened last month. They are recommending a charge of causing injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle, but those charges haven't been filed.
His citations include reckless driving, hit and run, and failure to report crashes. The fines add up to more than $3,000.
