BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — A man is accused of intentionally crashing his car into a traffic light pole in Boulder to try to kill his girlfriend, who was in the passenger seat.

Fifty-one-year-old George Pappas was seriously injured in the Oct. 12 crash. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted first degree murder Thursday after he was released from the hospital. He was being held in jail Friday and doesn’t have an attorney listed in court records yet.

The girlfriend, who wasn’t identified, was hurt but was able to walk away from the crash, which crumpled the blue Volvo sedan.

Police say witnesses heard both Pappas and the girlfriend say that Pappas was trying to kill her.
