Court upholds murder convictions in head-on crash

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A state appeals court has upheld a San Francisco man's second-degree murder convictions for killing two children in a head-on crash in Solano County.

A three-judge panel of the First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco ruled Wednesday there was enough evidence that 37-year-old Nicola Bucci endangered lives while speeding up a hill on the wrong side of the road in the 2006 accident that also injured two others.

Bucci's SUV slammed into an oncoming car killing 12-year-old Demari Hutchinson and 7-year-old Immanuel Callison, both of Fairfield.

Immanuel's brother was paralyzed and his mother suffered injuries in the crash.

Bucci, a former chef at Google, previously testified he was dizzy from carbon dioxide exposure at work and barely remembered the accident.

He is serving 23 years to life in prison.
