The truck driver sentenced to 110 years in prison for his role in a deadly crash that killed four people on Interstate 70 has received clemency from the governor. Rogel Aguilera-Mederos applied for clemency from Gov. Jared Polis, who announced Thursday that he reduced the sentence to 10 years. Aguilera-Mederos will be eligible for parole on Dec. 30, 2026. Polis called the sentence “arbitrary and unjust” and called on the Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice to examine sentencing guidelines to “ensure greater consistency in sentencing to prevent future bizarre outcomes like the one in this case.” Aguilera-Mederos claimed during trial that his brakes failed as he traveled eastbound on I-70 toward the city, ultimately crashing into stopped traffic in Lakewood and killing four people and hurting at least 10 more.
