ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An 18-year-old University of New Mexico student charged with killing a woman in a drunk driving crash will remain out of jail while awaiting trial.
Luke Griffin has already posted a $50,000 bond in his case. He’s accused of driving drunk on I-25 in February and rear-ending another car on the San Felipe Pueblo.
A Colorado woman in the other car, Corrina Vaden, was killed. Two others in the car were severely injured.
Deputies later determined Griffin was three times the legal limit.
Monday, the state didn’t oppose his current bond, but they did ask that he be monitored by GPS and be tested regularly for alcohol.
Police are still investigating where Griffin got the alcohol from on the night of the crash, since he’s too young to buy it legally.
He was seen at a Santa Fe Giant convenience store shortly before the crash.
