Reader: Suzanne Williams, CO state senator, should have been busted on spot of Texas crash
Senator Suzanne Williams's involvement in a Texas crash that killed a woman who was seven-months pregnant continues to be a contentious topic among readers.
One commenter speculated that Williams may have received special treatment from the Amarillo police because of her position.
Here's hippo55's post:
We came across the crash that night while driving home from Colorado. Big mess. The main thing I'm concerned about is why the Senator wasn't arrested on the spot. That same week we had a car with 4 teens aboard and ran a light at a high rate of speed and crashed into another ejecting the 16 year old female passenger and killing her. The 15 year old driver was arrested on the spot by the local Police. Seems like the right thing to do.
The 16-year-old male driver of the Mustang has been arrested on a charge of criminally negligent homicide, according to APD.
