A body awaits the coroner following a rollover on Pueblo, Colorado’s South Side. Police suspected that the truck’s driver was intoxicated following a party and attempted to street race a smaller vehicle before overturning on the median. The driver’s wife was crushed beneath the hood. An empty carseat was thrown from the truck, and one officer said that she feared a child had probably just lost its mother that night and its father to a long prison sentence.
Pueblo gangs prey on the youth, especially those without two parents at home, recruiting them as young as 10 and 11 at libraries, schools, and parks.
