DENVER, Colo. (AP) - Texas Trooper Gabriel Medrano said Wednesday that investigators took a blood sample from State Senator Suzanne Williams of Aurora.

Authorities say the SUV Williams was driving veered into oncoming traffic Sunday, colliding with a vehicle carrying 30 uear old Brianna Michelle Gomez of Amarillo and her family.

Gomez's son was delivered by Cesarean Section and remains in critical condition. Gomez died and her husband and two daughters were treated and released.

Northwest Texas Hospital Spokeswoman Caytie Martin says Williams' 41 year old son was in satisfactory condition Wednesday and his two sons have been released.

    She needs the book handed to her!!! So much for her making her own family follow the laws that she has fought so hard to make everyone else live by!!! She need to get the manslaughter, no seat belt, child abuse, and whatever other charges they can find and prosecute her to the fullest extent of the law!!! Just as she would want it done to someone if they had done this to her family!!!! Who cares if she is a senator that doesn't matter, she is a citizen just like everyone else, her senator status does not mean she is above the law nor does it mean she doesn't get charged like everyone else!!! CHARGE HER!!!

    She veered into oncoming traffic, causing the accident, death of one, injuries to others and authorities are weighing whether to pursue charges?! I'm sorry but if it were not a legislator I'm wondering if there would be no question and charges would already have been filed. It shouldn't matter that she is a legislator she caused the accident that led to the death of a woman; took a mom away from her children and injured others.
