MAN CHARGED WITH VEHICULAR HOMICIDE
Denver District Attorney Beth McCann has formally charged a man in connection with a fatal crash last week.
Terrance Clark (dob: 01-16-1976) is charged with one count of vehicular homicide-DUI (F3), one count of leaving the scene of an accident-resulting in death (F3), and one count of vehicular homicide-reckless driving (F4). Charges were filed yesterday.
The charges allege that, on the night of March 6, Clark was driving northbound on Quebec Street near the intersection with I-70 when he crashed into the rear of another vehicle stopped for a red light, resulting in the death of the other driver, 45-year-old Gaylon Powers, and then immediately fled on foot from the crash, ignoring commands from a police officer who witnessed the crash. The defendant was quickly apprehended by responding officers and displayed numerous indicia of alcoholic impairment, allegedly admitting he had been drinking beer.
Clark is scheduled to appear on March 14 at 8:30 a.m. in courtroom 2300 for 2nd advisement.
