Rogel Lázaro Aguilera-Mederos collided with a wooden truck going against several cars.

The governor of Colorado, Jared Police, this Thursday granted pardon by reducing his sentence from 110 to 10 years in prison following the crash that killed four young Cuban truck driver Rogel Aguilera-Maduros.

In 2019, four people, 23-year-old Aguilera-Maduros, were killed and several others were injured when a tree truck collided with several cars parked on Interstate 70 in western Denver.

The security guards allege that the young man did not use the emergency ramp to prevent a catastrophe because the brakes on the truck he was driving failed.

State law requires that the sentence for certain charges faced by Aguilera-Medero, including assault and attempted assault, be at least 10 years, and establishes that the sentences should be served continuously rather than simultaneously. A few weeks ago 110 years.
