The state should not proceed with citations against a mother whose two young children died in a wintry crash outside of Gunnison, her supporters say.
Jamie Dowling was cited with two counts of careless driving causing death, a misdemeanor offense. The Colorado State Patrol says Dowling failed on March 9 to maintain control of her vehicle on U.S. 50 as required by state law, and her two children died as a result.
But Bernadette Bifano, whose family members were first to respond to the wreck, says the state is out of line. She’s launched a petition at change.org in hopes of getting the District Attorney’s Office to drop the case.
