38-year-old department of corrections officer, Jason Ashley Ulrich, was driving under the influence when he caused an accident that injured three people. Ulrich was reportedly under the influence of both alcohol and prescription medicine at the time of the incident and will face charges of driving under the influence and vehicular assault. Colorado State Police believe Ulrich was also going 30mph over the speed limit on Smokey Hill Road when he collided with a Honda Pilot sending all three passengers to a local Aurora hospital. While two of the victims were released shortly after the accident, the driver is still in critical condition. Ulrich’s BAC was reported at a .252 which is three times over the legal limit of .08 according to the Colorado News Leader
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, last year over 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and or under drugs. One alcohol related death occurs every 48 minutes in the United States resulting in over 10,000 deaths a year. Drunk drivers are also responsible for leaving innocent victims with debilitating and chronic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
