Aurora, Colo. (AP) An attorney for an illegal immigrant facing vehicular homicide charges in an accident that killed three says a toxicology report shows the other driver had meth in her system, bolstering his argument that those charges be dropped.

The report obtained by Denver media indicate that 49-year-old Patricia Guntharp had meth and other “drugs of abuse” in her system. She, along with passenger 52-year-old Debra Serecky died Sept. 4. Three-year-old Marten Kudlis also died when the wreckage

Kallman Elinoff, an attorney for 23-year-old Francis Hernandez charged in the accident, has said Guntharp caused the crash by crossing a double yellow line and making an illegal left turn.
