A San Diego man charged with gross vehicular manslaughter and felony DUI with injury plead not guilty on Tuesday afternoon.

Justin Foulds, 39, was accused of driving drunk when he crashed into an SUV Dec. 9. The accident killed a 73-year-old woman and her grandson.

Celia Torres had just picked up her grandson David Gonzalez, 16, for a dentist appointment just after 5:30 p.m. Friday when their car was struck by another on SR-125.

Torres and Gonzales were killed in the fiery crash that happened when Foulds rear-ended Torres' Nissan Pathfinder, according to officials.

Foulds, a Lemon Grove resident, could get 12 to 13 years in a California prison if convicted, said Deputy District Attorney Gordon Paul Davis.

He has no prior record and is being held on $750,000 bail.

A readiness conference is scheduled for Dec. 22 and a preliminary hearing will be held Dec. 27.
