GOLDEN, Colo. - A 23-year-old Broomfield woman was formally charged on Wednesday in a wrong-way head-on crash that killed a friend and injured another person in Westminster, Jefferson County District Attorney Peter Weir said.
Britni Bunn is alleged to have been driving a red Ford sport utility vehicle westbound in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 36, near 92nd Avenue at 3 a.m. on Feb. 20, when she crashed into an Acura driven by Kendall Stiff. A passenger in Bunn's car, Vincent Michael James Gibson, 25, was killed in the crash. Both Stiff and a passenger in her car were also seriously injured.
An affidavit in support of a warrantless arrest indicates Bunn told investigating officers she had five margaritas before the crash. Police said they also found cocaine in her vehicle.
Bunn was formally charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, four counts of vehicular assault, possession of a controlled substance, driving under the influence, failure to provide proof of insurance, and improper driving on a divided highway.
7NEWS reported earlier that Bunn appeared to have posted several pictures of alcoholic drinks at a bar on her Facebook page just hours before the fatal crash.
The night before the early morning crash, Bunn or someone using her login uploaded a cellphone photo to her Facebook page showing a bar table with a Corona beer and what appeared to be a margarita and the comment, "Round two biaaaaaAtCH."
Another photo showed a Corona bottle pouring into a margarita glass with the comment, "YessssssssssssssssssS."
Bunn is being held on $20,000 bond. She has until March 6 to schedule a preliminary hearing.
