Driver Rejects Plea Deal in Minn. Teen's Death
A man accused of hitting and killing a 16-year-old girl outside a St. Paul High School will not accept a plea deal.
Carlos Viveros-Colorado rejected the plea deal and will go on trial in November before a judge.
He's charged with criminal vehicular homicide in connection with the death of Clarisse Grime.
Authorities say the incident happened July 5 outside of Harding High School, where Grime was attending summer school.
According to authorities, Viveros-Colorado was allegedly driving a SUV at excessively high speeds on Third Street when he misjudged a turn and lost control of the vehicle.
The SUV went off of the road, hit a fire hydrant and mowed over a sign before hitting both Grime and her boyfriend, 17-year-old Eduardo Vazquez-Torres.
Grime died at the scene. Vazquez-Torres, also from St. Paul, was conscious and walking following the crash. He was taken to Regions Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
