Aurora, Colorado police have issued a summons for the driver of a tow truck that was involved in a triple-fatality accident on July 4, 2007. The Aurora Police Department says 30-year-old Cynthia Charlebois, driver of the tow truck, faces three counts of careless driving resulting in death, two counts of careless driving resulting in serious bodily injury, and a minor traffic infraction.
On July 4, Charlebois was driving a tow truck that hit another car head-on killing William and Karen O’Neil and their 4-year-old son, Trevor. Their 2-year-old son, Tyler, survived the crash and is still recovering from a broken leg.
The Aurora police say the crash happened during a rainstorm just before 11 p.m. when the tow truck first hit a car and then went across the center median and hit another car. Charlebois then kept going the wrong way down the road, hitting the O’Neil’s car.
All charges are misdemeanors, and, if convicted, she will be sentenced to only six to 18 months in jail for each count.
