I Thought Colorado Was Cyclist Friendly?
This woman kills two cyclists while driving under the influence of morphine and barbituates, after shoplifting at the local Safeway. She gets 3 years in jail. WTF? I am beside myself right now. She had a summons to appear for a hit-and-run incident she was involved in two years before.
Thomas struck and killed the men at S. 26th Street, minutes after leaving the West Colorado Avenue Safeway. Police said she had been shoplifting and banged into a man’s car in the parking lot before driving off. The man followed her and saw her hit the bicyclists as she tried to turn left onto Westend Avenue — without yielding to oncoming traffic — in her 1986 Ford F-350. Police found her speech slurred and her eyes bloodshot, according to an arrest affidavit.
