People v. Aznavoleh, B231434

Defendant's convictions for assault with a deadly weapon and reckless driving causing injury are affirmed where: 1) a driver who deliberately races through a red light at a busy intersection and collides with another vehicle, causing injury to another, can be convicted of assault with a deadly weapon; 2) although the trial court erred by instructing the jury that defendant's reckless driving would cause injury to another, because the instruction inured to the defendant's benefit, the error was harmless; and 3) because defendant fails to show a reasonable probability that the result of his conviction would have been different had the challenged evidence been excluded, his claim of prejudicial error fails.
