COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — A man involved in a crash that killed two people, including a Commerce City Police Department detective, is now facing charges.

The 17th Judicial District Attorney's Office charged Fructuoso Rosales-Cano, 45, with two counts of vehicular homicide, DUI as a second offense and DUI per se as a second offense.

The Oct. 16 crash killed Commerce City Police Department Detective Curt Holland, 37, and Francesca Dominguez, 31. Both Holland, in an unmarked Ford Explorer, and Dominguez, driving a Kia Soul, were on Highway 2 near Turnberry Parkway when Rosales-Cano lost control of his Ford F-350, swerved across both the westbound and eastbound lanes and crashed into both vehicles, according to investigators.

Holland and Dominguez were both pronounced dead at the scene.

At the time, Rosales-Cano was taken to the University of Colorado Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Colorado State Troopers arrested Rosales-Cano Wednesday after he was released from the hospital.
