DENVER -- An 83-year-old man who caused a crash that killed a Jefferson County sheriff's deputy plead guilty to a vehicular homicide charge Monday.

Golden resident Kenneth Hosch was arrested after the crash on Highway 93 on Jan. 26.

Hosch allegedly crossed over into the northbound lane as he was driving southbound on Highway 93 to pass a vehicle. He collided head-on with Sgt. David Baldwin, who was riding his deputy motorcycle.

The deputy died as a result of injuries sustained from the crash.

Sentencing for Hosch has been scheduled for August 29.

    Taking their keys does no good, they call the locksmith to make a set. Getting DMV and “compassionate killer” Doctors to admit their patient is no longer physically/mentally competent or sober enough to drive is impossible. Dr asked, “How’s your driving?”, not, How’s your drinking and driving?…Told the doctor I’d willingly and immediately offer his info to the victims attorney as part of the coming lawsuits…You have to sell their cars.

    Well, This is a good example of why the DMV should not issue driver’s licenses for 10 years.Totally crazy,a lot can change in 10 years especially when they’re old.BUUUUUUTTTTTT,when an elderly person does something crazy it’s usually explained by “he/she’s old”(Like the 93 yr old who was shot to death by an officer for brandishing a weapon) that was seen as cruel because she was so old.So why blame this guy…Poor old man.
