Drunk lady driver on way to Alcoholics Anonymous meeting seriously injured student after crashing into him outside church

A 73-year-old woman faces drunk driving charges after crashing while on her way to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Boulder, Colorado.

Police say Brenda Geers hit an 18-year-old college student as she crashed into the St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church. “We just express our sorrow for the victim and his family. We are also concerned about the driver,” said Rev. Mary Kate Rejouis.

Officers said she first collided with a food truck in the parking lot and then hit Eric Anderson at a table, then smashed into the church. “His body was thrown or pushed by the vehicle from here over close to the building. So that’s 25 or 30 feet,” said Rejouis.

Geers faces charges of vehicular assault and DUI after police said she failed a sobriety test. Anderson was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Geers is scheduled to appear in court next week.
