Fatal Accident

By  | 

The Colorado State Patrol identifies the driver as 17-year-old
Louis Perez of Platteville. He also faces charges of leaving the
scene of an accident and driving without a valid license. He is being held in a juvenile detention facility.

Sixteen-year-old Aaron Bonilla of LaSalle was ejected in
yesterday's crash and suffered a lacerated liver.

Investigators want to know why five other teens in the Lincoln
Navigator didn't take Bonilla and another person to a Greeley
hospital until about an hour after the crash.

Bonilla died after surgery. The other teen was treated and
released.

The State Patrol says one of the teens called a friend, who
dropped off the uninjured people at their homes before taking
Bonilla and the other person to the hospital.
