Teen charged with deadly DWI takes plea deal

Luke Griffin

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A teen accused of killing a woman in a drunk driving crash on I-25 earlier this year took a plea deal.

Investigators say in February, Luke Griffin was drunk when he rear-ended a car on I-25 near the San Felipe Pueblo.

A Colorado woman in the other car was killed and two others were injured.

Monday in court, Griffin pleaded to homicide by vehicle and great bodily harm by vehicle.

Griffin now faces 21-years in prison. His sentencing is set for Friday.
