Kenyan man charged with drunken driving and vehicular assault in Colorado

A Kenyan man is charged with drunken driving and vehicular assault after a New Year’s crash into the Loveland Village Inn sign left he and a female passenger with serious bodily injuries.

Daudi Kariuki Njenga, 22, while living in Frederick, had been at a party in Fort Collins before he drove his 1984 Chevrolet Camaro into the sign at about 2:26 a.m. Jan. 1, according to Loveland Police.

“He said he was going the speed limit, hit ice and lost control,” police spokesman Mike Halloran said.

Njenga was arrested Tuesday. Halloran said the delay between the crash and arrest were due in part to waiting for a blood-alcohol test regarding the DUI and medical records to support the felony vehicular assault charge.

Njenga and his 22-year-old passenger were the only ones hurt in the incident on Eisenhower Boulevard.
