The accident occurred at 17th Place and the off ramp from I-225 southbound in Aurora. After two months of investigation, police believe that the teenage driver of a pickup truck, who did not have a driver’s license, was speeding when he ran a red light.

The teenager is charged with driving without a license and careless driving resulting in death.
Every day, some people let their minds wander while they drive. Or they try to do something else while driving. In fact, driving can become such a habit that it becomes easy to think that you can do it without really thinking about it. Unfortunately, this is exactly how many car accidents happen. Attention drifts, and a driver does something that they would never have done otherwise. Many people don’t realize that you can actually face criminal charges if your actions cause a car accident. In the event of a fatal accident, you can be facing jail time if the police believe that the accident was caused by careless driving.
