Colorado Hit-And-Run Driver Avoids Jail
In a follow-up to this story, Channel 7 News reports: A judge sentenced a hit-and-run driver who plowed into a cyclist in Vail to probation, community service and making charitable donations Thursday night.
Eagle County District Judge Frederick Gannett sentenced the driver, Martin Erzinger, to 90 days in jail, but suspended the jail time.
Instead, Erzinger, 52, will lose his driver’s license for a year and have to take a leave of absence from his Denver hedge-fund manager job and complete 45 straight days of community service. He’s also ordered to make charitable donations, instead of paying court fines.
