The truck came to rest in the parking lot of Dave and Buster's restaurant after hitting the building on the way down.
The driver of the truck survived the crash but remains hospitalized.
Through his attorney, Uribe pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors insist Uribe is responsible, saying a tip from a passenger who was in his truck when the accident happened, led to his arrest.
"The defendant was seen swerving in his vehicle, then struck the driver of the truck. The victim lost control and went over guardrail and dropped 50 feet, hit a building and landed in parking lot," said Deputy District Attorney Jalyn Wang.
Uribe was already on probation for taking part in the rape of an unconscious woman.
He will remain in jail held on $100,000 bond.
He arrived in court on a wheelchair, but his injuries are not related the accident that he is accused of causing.
