Charges dismissed in fatal Colorado Springs crash

Prosecutors say Eggleton driving below speed limit

Charges have been dismissed against a Colorado Springs woman involved in a crash that killed two pedestrians and injured a baby girl in a stroller.

Police said the two women were pushing a baby in a stroller on North Carefree Circle at Picturesque Drive in October when they were hit  by a car. The women, Rose Arcurgari and Rebecca Lynn Robinson, died. Robinson's daughter survived.

Prosecutors said there wasn't enough evidence to prove charges of careless driving resulting in death, careless driving resulting in injury, and failure to yield against Jennifer Eggleton.

Prosecutor Tonya Karimi said a police crash reconstruction team determined that Eggleton was driving below the 40 mph speed limit before the Oct. 15 crash.

Karimi says that had the case gone to trial, there also would have been testimony that the women ran into the street.
