MAN IS SENTENCED FOR VEHICULAR HOMICIDE

 

A man who pleaded guilty to drunkenly crashing his car into another vehicle, resulting in the death of the other driver, and then fleeing the scene of the accident, was sentenced yesterday in Denver District Court.

 

Terrance Clark (dob: 01-16-1976) pleaded guilty in August as charged to one count of vehicular homicide-DUI (F3) and to one count of leaving the scene of an accident-resulting in death (F3).  He was sentenced to six years in prison on each count, the sentences to run concurrently.

 

On the night of March 6, 2018, 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 law enforcement officer who witnessed the crash.
