After deliberating for about 10 hours, a Mesa County jury informed the judge it could not come to a decision in a vehicular homicide case.

Because the jury was split, a new trial date will have to be set for Jade Huskey if the District Attorney's Office decides to move forward.

Colorado State Patrol says in February 2006, Huskey was driving drunk on I-70 at more than 100 miles per hour when he went off the road and slammed into a guardrail. He and his friend, Molly Gomez were both thrown from the car. Gomez later died.

Huskey has maintained throughout the investigation that Gomez was behind the wheel at the time of the accident.
