A Pagosa Springs, Colo., man has been arrested and charged in relation to an Oct. 1 accident that killed Leslie P. Terp of Los Alamos.
The Pagosa Springs Sun reported that Jared Earley, 29, the driver of the vehicle, was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide, DUI, reckless driving, and driving under revocation for alcohol. He has had his initial court appearance and has bonded out from jail. It was not known at press time when his next court appearance will be.
Terp, 57, was a Los Alamos business man and a volunteer with the White Rock Little League. He left behind a wife, five children and six grandchildren.
According to the Colorado State Police, the accident happened at 1:38 a.m.
The vehicle was westbound on Carlee Place in Pagosa Springs when the driver apparently lost control and ran off the right side of the road. The vehicle then continued back onto the road and off of the left side, where it traveled down an embankment and rolled one-half turn, coming to rest on its top, according to CSP.
Both Earley and Terp were ejected from the car. Neither was wearing a seat belt, according to CSP. Terp was pronounced dead at the scene.
