Denver (AP) The Denver District Attorney’s office has announced charges against a woman accused of driving drunk and causing a hit-and-run collision in Denver that killed two Connecticut women.

Forty-year-old Sandra Lee Jacobson of Centennial faces two counts of vehicular homicide, two counts of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Police say her pickup truck sideswiped a cab headed to Denver international airport on Jan. 28.

Fifty-four-year-old Kathy Krasniewicz and 71-year-old Kate McClelland, both of Riverside, Conn., were ejected and killed after the cab went off the road and rolled.

The cab driver, 27-year-old Nejmudean Abdusalam, was injured in crash.

Jacobson is free on $50,000 bond. She will be formally advised of the charges at a hearing scheduled for Feb. 13.
