Suspected Drunk Driver Charged in Fatal Crash

A 23-year-old man has been charged in connection with a deadly Breckenridge crash. The crash occurred on September 29, when the suspect lost control of his Jeep and crashed, killing one of his passengers. The suspect has been charged with vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, and several other misdemeanor charges related to drunk driving. He is presently being held on a $15,000 bond while being detained in the Summit County Jail.

Alcohol diminishes brain functioning, causing drunk drivers to have slow reaction times and difficulty judging the distance between their automobiles and other objects and vehicles on the road. Drinking and driving while intoxicated can result in serious, often fatal, accidents on Colorado’s roadways. Surviving family members who have lost loved ones in drunk driving accidents want justice for their loss. An experienced Boulder injury attorney can help loved ones hold the irresponsible drunk driver responsible for their family member’s death and also seek compensation from the bars, restaurants or breweries, that served alcohol to the intoxicated driver.
