Amarillo, Texas (AP) -- A prosecutor says the Colorado State
Senator involved in a crash that killed a pregnant woman in the
Texas panhandle last year has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor
charge of driving on the wrong side of the road. Senator Suzanne Williams paid a $200 fine and $68 in court costs, according to Hartley County Attorney Shane Turner. The Amarillo Globe-News reported Friday that Texas law allowed for the dismissal of two seat-belt citations against Williams, a staunch seat belt supporter. Last December, Williams' SUV crossed the center line of a highway and struck a vehicle carrying 30-year-old Brianna Gomez. Before Gomez died, her son was delivered in emergency surgery. Williams was cleared of criminal wrongdoing. Her Texas attorney said she instructed him not to comment on the case.
