GALENA, Kan. — Authorities are searching for a woman involved in a fatal car accident in southeast Kansas.
The Joplin Globe reports that Galena police issued a warrant last week for 25-year-old Shelby Colon’s arrest. The Cherokee County district attorney has charged Colon with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of 66-year-old Charles Burkybile Jr. and 86-year-old Glen A. Roosa.
Authorities say Burkybile and Roosa were struck by a vehicle Colon was driving on July 6.
Burkybile died at the scene. Roosa later died at a nearby hospital.
Police Chief Billy Charles says Colon stopped at the scene and didn’t attempt to flee. He says there was no indication she was impaired at the time, but a blood sample was sent to the state crime lab for analysis.
