Murder charges against Marcos Barbosa Costa, 44, were reinstated on April 6 by a state appeals court panel, which ruled that Costa was aware of the risk involved when he descended the steep mountain pass. The ruling reversed a lower-court decision to throw out the murder charges. On April 1, 2009, Costa drove a car carrier southbound on Angeles Crest Highway.
