More charges after cyclist killed in W. ColoradoMarch 9, 2014 @ 1:51 pm (Updated: 2:00 pm - 3/9/14 )
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — A 29-year-old Palisade woman involved in a crash in western Colorado that killed a man on a cross-country bicycling trip is now facing several drug charges.
Prosecutors say Tonie Rosales used cocaine for two days in September before heading to Delta for a court hearing relating to a prior DUI arrest. She struck and killed 25-year-old Eunjey Cho on U.S. Highway 50 on her way to court Sept. 18 and was formally charged with the drug offenses Thursday.
The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1gc4wnD ) Rosales already has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide — one alleging DUI and another alleging reckless driving.
Cho was a volunteer with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest in Spokane, Wash. He was riding from Seattle to Princeton, N.J.
