Coban Porter, a guard on the University of Denver basketball team, has been charged with vehicular homicide and reckless driving after a fatal car accident in Denver.
Porter was accused by Denver police of speeding and running a red light in a collision early Sunday morning.
According to USA Today, a Denver police probable cause statement said, “the investigation revealed that the Defendant was driving at an estimated speed of 50 MPH, EB on E Buchtel Blvd and ran the red light at S University Blvd striking the victim’s vehicle that was traveling NB on S University Blvd.”
The speed limit on that stretch is 30 miles per hour.
In the other car, the driver, Kathy Rothman, died and passenger reportedly sustained serious injuries. Rothman’s friends and family set up a GoFundMe for those looking to help as she leaves behind a 4-year-old son.
An officer who interviewed Porter at the scene wrote, “The Defendant … displayed bloodshot and watery eyes, slurred and mumbling speech, and the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath.”
The Denver Post reports that a blood-alcohol test is still pending, and that Porter was released Sunday on $20,000 bond.
Porter, a 21-year-old guard, appeared in 28 games for Denver and averaged 11.4 points per game last season. He has missed this entire season due to a torn ACL.
Porter is the younger brother of Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr.; Porter Jr. missed Sunday’s game against the Thunder, with the team citing “personal reasons.”
