Truck driver pleads guilty in Boulder crash case

The driver of a semi-truck that was involved in a crash in Boulder last summer has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the accident. The guilty plea was in response to a count of operating an unsafe or defective vehicle. An additional charge of careless driving was dismissed by the court. The vehicle operator was ordered to pay a $100 fine, and he will also be expected to pay restitution. The amount of the restitution payment has not yet been determined, and the court has told prosecutors that they have until June to come up with an amount.
