DENVER (AP) – A 28-year-old man accused of causing an accident in Denver that killed one person and injured another has been charged with vehicular homicide, driving under the influence and leaving the scene of the accident.

Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey said Friday he formally charged Johnny Hockaday for Monday’s crash. He remains in custody on $100,000 bail.

Charging documents say Hockaday was driving drunk when he ran a red light at the intersection of 13th Avenue and Washington Street — broadsiding another vehicle and killing the driver. A passenger in Hockaday’s vehicle was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

Police say Hockaday walked away from the scene but was arrested nearby.
