UPDATE: Shikenna Hasty is now in prison on one count of DUI manslaughter. She’s set to be released Dec. 13, 2026.

Three people died when Shikenna Hasty’s 2006 Chevrolet Impala smashed into a 2005 Toyota Corolla sedan at the intersection of Northwest 119th Street and 17th Avenue on Mother’s Day. Now, for each member of that tragic trio, Hasty faces a charge of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide — six felonies in all.

Hasty was released Saturday after making $120,000 bond, $20,000 for each charge.

The accident report says the Toyota containing driver Paul Manreza; Ramon Castro; Ramon’s nephew Roger Varela-Castro; and Varela-Castro’s fiancée, Maricela Villafana, was in the intersection and turning left from southbound 17th Avenue to eastbound 119th Street. Hasty, going north on 17th Avenue, ran a red light before T-boning the 1,000-pounds-lighter Toyota in the passenger side. Only Manreza survived.

From 2004-10, Hasty received seven license suspensions for failing to pay tickets, among them several for driving without a license. She straightened out as a driver well enough to have a valid license and no citations since 2010 when the accident occurred May 8.
