Driver injured in crash with DOC worker in critical condition - The Denver Post

Driver injured in crash with DOC worker in critical condition - The Denver Post

The man whose car was struck by one driven by an accused impaired driver from the Department of Corrections remained in the hospital in critical condition Thursday.

Jonathan Price, 36, was driving along East Smoky Hill Road near South Riviera Way at 9:05 a.m. Saturday when DOC employee Jason Ulrich swerved and hit the car carrying Price and his wife and child.

Price's wife, Diane, 32, and the couple's 2-year-old daughter were treated at a local hospital and released.

Ulrich, 38, told police he was drinking and taking painkillers before his car slammed into the Price family car, Aurora police Lt. Chuck DeShazer said.

DeShazer said that if Ulrich's blood tests show alcohol or drugs, a case will be presented to the Arapahoe County district attorney's office for a filing of vehicular assault.

DeShazer added that vehicular assault could also be filed against Ulrich if his driving was reckless — if in fact he was going 75 mph in a posted 45 mph, as investigators estimated.

Hi, sorry to leave an unrelated comment, but I couldn’t find any contact info for you. I’m wondering if you’d be interested in a guest post. Please drop me an e-mail. Thanks!

I hope that CCJRC, other groups, and the media do not lose track of this case as time goes on.mpc
