Man charged with driving while stoned after hitting CSP vehicles


DENVER — A pair of Colorado State Patrol vehicles were struck by a Chevrolet truck Saturday night, prompting officers to arrest the driver for DUI.

Keith Kilbey, 23, was charged with driving under the influence after his Chevrolet truck collided with a CSP Crown Victoria parked on the ramp to I-76 from northbound I-25, CSP said. The accident, which occurred about 9 p.m., caused the Crown Victoria to slam into a nearby CSP Dodge Charger.

Police suspect the man was under the influence of marijuana, the Denver Post reported. It was not clear if he had actually undergone any sort of drug testing.

The CSP vehicles were parked in the left lane with their emergency lights flashing, CSP said.

No one was injured in the crash.
