Driver that caused Boulder car crash might be facing murder charges. On Wednesday, around 11:30 a.m, Boulder County officers were called to a head-on collision on South Boulder Road, between 68th Street and Crannell Drive.
The next day, the driver that caused the crash, a 34-year-old female, was accused and then arrested for stealing a vehicle, leading police on a chase and is suspicious of first-degree-murder. Her name is Amanda Garcia, and she’s currently in custody.
According to Boulder Police, other charges the woman might be facing include extreme indifference, vehicular homicide- reckless, vehicular homicide – DUI, vehicular assault – reckless, vehicular assault – DUI, first-degree assault, leaving the scene of fatal crash, leaving the scene of a crash involving injury, robbery, aggravated motor vehicle theft and vehicular eluding.
Authorities informed that emergency responders said the driver of the Jeep that Garcia struck, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The woman fled the scene and then stole a Ford SUV, injuring the driver before taking his car. Garcia evaded officers while speeding in the Stolen SUV.
Finally, Amanda turned into a parking lot near 28th, where she was taken into custody. Officers said she admitted to using fentanyl and alcohol prior to the crash.
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was injured in the crashes and with the family of the deceased.
