BROOMFIELD, Colorado — A 17-year-old boy who was involved in an accident that killed a Broomfield High School student has denied several charges.
The Broomfield Enterprise reports (http://goo.gl/dHxOKD) the teen, who is not being identified because he is a minor, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to vehicular homicide, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. His trial is scheduled for Aug. 3.
Investigators say the teen was driving when he hit 16-year old Chad Britton, who was standing next to a vehicle parked on a street near the school Nov. 3. The driver, who was not injured, attends a school in Lafayette.
Investigators say he got behind the wheel of his car after smoking pot, even though a friend tried to persuade him not to drive.
