FARMINGTON — Wanda Trujillo was formally charged Tuesday with her second drunken driving offense, as well as causing great bodily harm with a vehicle. Trujillo, 36, of Dulce, is accused of crashing her vehicle into a motorcyclist at the intersection of East Main Street and Pinon Hills Boulevard earlier this week.
The motorcyclist is identified as Harold Watts in a probable cause statement. The 48-year-old was transported to San Juan Regional Medical Center following the crash and then flown to Denver Health Medical Center. A spokeswoman for Denver Health said Friday that Watts was in good condition.
According to a probable cause statement, Officers were dispatched at 3:30 p.m. Monday to the corner of East Main Street and Pinon Hills Boulevard after receiving reports of a traffic crash.
Police said in the statement that Trujillo smelled like alcohol, had difficulty walking and exhibited slurred speech. Trujillo allegedly admitted to consuming alcohol before the crash, but was unable to say how much. She refused to perform field sobriety tests or have her blood drawn, according to the statement. A judge approved a warrant at 4:45 p.m. and her blood was taken a half hour later.
Police noted in the statement that Trujillo's driver's license indicated that she was required to wear corrective lenses while driving. She was not seen wearing glasses and told police she did not wear contacts.
According to court records, Trujillo's bond has been set at $75,000. She is expected to appear in Farmington Magistrate Court for a preliminary examination on Wednesday.
Causing great bodily harm with a vehicle is a third-degree felony. It carries a maximum sentence of three years imprisonment and $5,000 in fines.
