The Seattle Times reported 20-year-old Yichun Xu pleaded guilty in February to vehicular homicide and three counts of reckless endangerment for a Nov. 10, 2012, crash in Des Moines that killed 25-year-old Brenda Gomez-Zapata.
Charging documents say the Chinese national had been in the country for two months and was living with a host family in Olympia and attending Puget Sound Community College at the time.
Prosecutors said he was driving around 70 mph, ran a stop sign and crashed into Gomez-Zapata’s car.
