Teen accused of driving drunk, killing 2 people pleads guilty

Ori Tsioni and Gregoria Morales died in the April 9 crash. A number of adults and companies face charges for allegedly providing alcohol to the teen.

BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — A teenage girl who was accused of driving drunk and killing two people last April in a head-on crash pleaded guilty to a "number of the top charges" in the case, according to the Boulder District Attorney's Office.

The girl, who was 17 when the crash happened on April 9, 2022, pleaded guilty on Dec. 16, according to court records. The district attorney's office declined to specify which charges she pleaded guilty to but said she's due to be sentenced on Feb. 3.

Due to her age, the charges do not appear in public court records.

According to investigators, the girl was intoxicated and left a post-prom party to get more alcohol. She was driving a Dodge pickup south in the northbound lanes of Foothills Parkway when she crashed head-on into a Subaru going north, according to the Colorado State Patrol. The Subaru was then pushed into the right lane and rear-ended by a Honda sedan. 

Ori Tsioni, 33, and Gregoria Morales Ramirez, 49, who were in the Subaru, were both killed. The Honda driver and the teen were also hurt.

The teen was initially charged with the following:

  • Two counts of vehicular homicide
  • Vehicular assault
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving with excessive alcohol content
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Minor in possession of alcohol

In September, a grand jury indicted nine companies and individuals on suspicion of supplying fake IDs or providing alcohol to teenagers, including the girl charged in the crash.


Prosecutors said they could provide more information once the court imposes its sentence on Feb. 3.
