Colorado Drunk Driver Rolls Jeep Into Canal

A 37-year old driver of a Jeep Commander ran off the road at a t-intersection, struck a guardrail and rolled down an embankment into an irrigation canal in Weld County. The wreck occurred near the Timnath Reservoir shortly before 2:00 am Wednesday morning.

The driver, Eric Brian Wells, was pronounced dead at the scene. His six passengers all suffered moderate injuries, with some being trapped in the vehicle in the canal. The six were extracted by rescue crews and transported to local hospitals.

Colorado State Troopers investigating the accident believe that alcohol was a factor. Wells was charged with Colorado DUI in 2009, but pled guilty to a lesser charge of driving while ability impaired. He was arrested again with driving under the influence in Colorado in 2003, and he pled guilty to that charge.
