Oscar Paz, 32, was speeding in his Volkswagen Jetta in the slow lane on the 22 freeway about 5 a.m. on Dec. 11, 2011, approaching Magnolia Street when he slammed into a Nissan driven by a 66-year-old man, prosecutors said.

Paz drove off without stopping, parked his car in a nearby strip mall and fled on foot, according to prosecutors. Two days after the collision, Paz turned himself in to the CHP Westminster office.

The victim remained in a coma in critical condition for several weeks after suffering severe brain and spinal injuries. He is still unable to walk or speak, and continues to suffer constant pain, prosecutors said.

Paz was convicted by an Orange County jury in July of felony hit-and-run with permanent injury.
