A man who plowed into the corner of a building in south Denver with his SUV is facing new charges.
The Denver District Attorney's Office said Tuesday that 24-year-old Ryan Nuanez has been charged with vehicular homicide and vehicular assault, in addition to charges of third-degree assault, driving under the influence and driving under revocation.
Nuanez is accused of crashing his Chevy Tahoe into an Accent Optics store July 12. The Denver Post reports four people in the store were injured - including a 59-year-old woman who later died.
Nuanez suffered serious arm injuries.
The SUV, which was traveling on the wrong side of the street, narrowly missed a lamp post and a fire hydrant before it crashed into the building. Nuanez is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 5.
