Man charged with vehicular homicide in Denver crash that killed 46-year-old father, injured young girl – The Denver Post

Patrick Layden, 49, has been charged with vehicular homicide, vehicular assault and assault in the first degree following an April 10 crash in Denver that left a 46-year-old man dead and a young girl hospitalized with serious injuries, the Denver District Attorney announced Tuesday.

Layden was charged with two counts of assault in the first degree, one count of vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular assault for the incident that happened at the intersection of 32nd Avenue and Lowell Boulevard.

Prosecutors allege Layden was speeding, crossing double yellow lines and ran a red light before striking a vehicle driven by Bradley Brubaker who was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple blunt force injuries, according to the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner.

Brubaker’s young daughter was also injured in the crash.

A GoFundMe campaign was established to help raise money for Brubaker’s family, who described the 46-year-old as “an incredible father and a beloved member of the community.”

Layden is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
