Makeup Causes Accident
The driver of a minivan that rolled off Interstate 25 in northern Colorado, injuring five children inside, was allegedly putting on makeup while another passenger steered. The driver, 30-year-old Jennifer Lamblin of Cheyenne, Wyo. as well as the passenger,
23-year-old Trevor Johnson, have both been charged with reckless vehicular assault. The Coloradoan reported that they both appeared in court in Fort Collins Thursday but declined comment. According to an arrest affidavit, Lamblin told troopers that Johnson was steering as she put on makeup on their way to church in Denver. She said the vehicle drifted to the right and she thought he was falling asleep so she went to take the steering wheel back and then lost control. The children injured in the crash ranged in age from 2 to 8.
