On March 9th, Jamie Dowling lost both of her young children in a horrific car accident on a snow packed road in Colorado. Both children were wearing seat-belts properly when Jamie lost control on a patch of ice. But now, District Attorney Dan Hotsenpiller wants to charge her with careless driving resulting in death. This was a terrible accident that took place on a snowy highway - not something a mother who just lost her only children should have to relive in the court system.
I can attest to the horrendous driving conditions that day. In fact, the accident happened right next to my parent's home and they were the first people on the scene (20 minutes before EMS). Her 5-year-old son Landryn Scott had died at the scene and 2-year-old Raylee Kay would die later at the hospital. Jamie suffered serious injuries. This could have been anyone that lost control. Jamie should be allowed to move on without having this dragged on any further by the Judicial System. The other driver involved refused to press charges against Jamie, so why should the DA? I would like to propose that we stand up and show Jamie what community is about and fight these charges so she can move on with life.
