GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4) – Prosecutors call the man accused in the hit-and-run death of a tow truck driver an “extreme threat to society.”

He has a long list of prior traffic offenses, including DUIs.
The victim, Alan Dilley, worked for Connolly Towing.
His family says he had been driving tow trucks for more than 15 years.
