Attorney representing I-70 truck driver arrested

Robert Corry is accused of criminal mischief, first-degree kidnapping and other charges

Posted

Robert Corry, the attorney representing the truck driver involved in the fiery Interstate 70 crash that left four people dead, was arrested June 14 on suspicion of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, motor vehicle theft and first-degree kidnapping, Denver police reported.

According to an affidavit, a woman was picking up Corry from Denver International Airport when he grabbed her and said he was being chased by Arabs. Corry rushed the woman into her vehicle and drove off, the affidavit said. He reportedly drove aggressively as he struck other vehicles and yelled at people. The woman asked to get out of the vehicle, but Corry told her to be quiet or “he would kill her,” the affidavit reads.

As Corry continued to drive, traffic slowed him down and the woman jumped out and called 911. Corry is due back in a Denver District Court on July 1. He remains in jail with no bond.

Corry is representing Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos, the truck driver in the April 25 crash, who has been charged with four counts of vehicular homicide, six counts of first-degree assault and 24 counts of attempted first-degree assault. Aguilera-Mederos was released May 18 on $400,000 bond. He is expected back in court for a preliminary hearing on July 11.
