HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS —The hearing involving Lucas Paul Ackerman has been continued to Sept. 19. Ackerman’s attorney, Jack Dicola, filed the continuation without objection from the prosecution.

Ackerman was booked into Grand County Jail on July 4 on charges of vehicular homicide, vehicular assault while under the influence of alcohol, child abuse, and possession of a firearm while under the influence in relation to a vehicle-pedestrian accident that took place outside of Grand Lake after the July 4 celebrations.

The truck Ackerman was driving hit and killed one pedestrian and sent four others to Denver-area hospitals.

The 14th Judicial District Attorney, Brett Barkey, has decided to bring the case in front of a Grand Jury, which will decide what charges, if any, will be brought against the man.
