Conviction in double-fatal I-5 crash

Antioch man convicted in 2017 wreck that killed Oregon father, son

An Antioch man faces up to 15 years in prison for the 2017 traffic deaths of an Oregon father and son on Interstate 5 north of Willows.

Shawntre Tillis, 24, pleaded guilty last month in Glenn County Superior Court to two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated in connection with the March 12, 2017, deaths of Isidro Garcia, 26, and Garcia’s 2-year-old son, Fabian, District Attorney Dwayne Stewart told the CN&R.

The 24-year-old Tillis caused a chain-reaction, multiple-car crash on I-5 near Artois. Garcia, according to news reports, had been returning home from a trip to Disneyland.

Tillis is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 16. He remains in custody.
