Chasity DelRio Pleads Not Guilty To DUI Charge
A Natrona County woman is denying her role in a drunk driving crash that resulted in several injuries.
Chasity DelRio has pleaded not guilty to one charge of DUI resulting in serious bodily injury.
According to the Natrona County Sheriff's Office, deputies were called to a one vehicle crash on County Highway 116 near Midwest in early August.
Both DelRio and her passenger, Michael Mondle, were not wearing their seat-belts at the time and were life-flighted to Denver for treatment.
In an interview with investigators, DelRio told them she had been drinking earlier in the day, smoked pot several days prior and estimated that she was driving at about 50-60 miles per hour at the time of the crash.
Investigators say DelRio had a blood alcohol concentration level of point-one-nine, more than twice the legal limit for driving.
Mondle ended up with a broken wrist and multiple broken vertebras in his neck and back as a result of the crash.
DelRio is free on $25,000 bond, awaiting trial and could receive up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
