DENVER — A 22-year-old woman has been charged with multiple counts of assault after she allegedly crashed her car into another vehicle while high on marijuana last week.

Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey  formally charged Emily Strock with two counts of vehicular assault, four counts of third degree assault, one count of driving under the influence of drugs and one count of driving without proof of insurance.

Strock was speeding eastbound on Colfax Avenue about 2:30 a.m. on July 21 when she ran a red light at Speer Boulevard and collided with another vehicle, the charges allege.

Six people were hurt in the crash. The charges also allege that Strock was under the influence of marijuana at the time.

The suspect was released from custody on $50,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 5.
