An Aurora woman who drove into and killed a bicyclist in Englewood and fled the scene has been sentenced to six years in prison, according to a news release by the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office.
Nancy Condit, 64, died the early morning of July 2, according to Englewood police, after Dominique Cain, 33, collided with her while she was on a bicycle at the intersection of South Downing Street and East Cornell Avenue the afternoon of July 1.
Cain left the scene, and the bicyclist was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. Condit lived in Denver, according to the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office.
The car and a woman associated with it were located in Aurora the evening of July 1, the release said. Cain was charged with six counts: failure to stop and give information in an accident resulting in death, vehicular homicide, operating an uninsured vehicle, driving with a suspended license, failure to observe a traffic signal and reckless driving.
Cain pleaded guilty Jan. 11 to the top count of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, and other charges against her were dismissed, according to the DA's news release. She was sentenced on March 6.
Cain has a record of driving-related law violations stretching back to 2005, ranging from speeding to driving under restraint, according to court records.
“This defendant did not have a valid license or insurance and drove at recklessly high speeds, all while holding her cell phone. She ran a red light and killed an innocent cyclist who had the right of way. But worst of all, the defendant made the conscious decision to leave the victim for dead,” said Deputy District Attorney Michael Mauro, one of the case's prosecutors. “Nothing can fully repair the damage done, but the sentence in this case signals to the defendant and the community that leaving the scene of a crash — especially one where a victim is injured — will not be tolerated.”
