Ex-Broncos Player Faces Hearing In Fatal Hit-And-Run

By  | 

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Monday for a former Denver Broncos player accused of killing a motor scooter driver in a hit-and-run collision.

Billy Jenkins faces charges of vehicular homicide, leaving the scene, driving under the influence and failure to provide insurance.

Authorities say 51-year-old Tracy Gill died when his scooter was rear-ended on Aug. 28 in the Denver suburb of Aurora. Jenkins allegedly ran from the scene but later returned.

Jenkins was on the St. Louis Rams Super Bowl championship team in 1999 and played for the Broncos in 2000-01. He retired in 2002.

Jenkins has been free on $50,000 bail.
