Nancy Graves scheduled to appear in court May 12
Routt County woman accused of hitting man with her car while driving under influence
March 24, 2010
Steamboat Springs — Nancy Graves, the Routt County woman accused of hitting a man with her car while driving under the influence Feb. 5, will go to court again in May after her case was continued Wednesday.
Graves' attorney, Cheryl Hardy-Moore, requested a continuance until May 12 to provide time to go over records in the case and because Graves' sister will be in town from out of the country.
Graves, 68, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and vehicular assault.
Graves reportedly hit William "Rick" Hagberg, 51, as he was crossing U.S. Highway 40 at Walton Creek Road at about 6:15 p.m. Feb. 5. The impact sent him 83 feet. Police have said he sustained "full body" injuries.
Hagberg remains at Denver Health. In mid-February, hospital representatives said his condition had improved from the initial assessment of "critical" to "good." Wednesday, however, a hospital spokeswoman said Hagberg was in only "fair" condition.
Deputy District Attorney Rusty Prindle said Wednesday that he had talked to Hagberg's family in Massachusetts and that the delay may allow the court to have a better insight into Hagberg's condition before the court takes action.
