Steamboat Springs Man found not guilty in fatal crash case
Kenneth Muhme of Craig was found not guilty Thursday night of careless driving causing death, in a charge related to a February accident that resulted in the death of Steamboat Springs resident Amy Flint.
Attorney Larry Combs represented Muhme, who pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge in June.
Muhme was cited in February after he reportedly lost control of the tow truck he was driving on Colo. Highway 131. The tow truck was hauling Flint's truck from an earlier accident. Flint was riding in the passenger seat of Muhme's truck when the truck rolled down an embankment onto its roof. She died at the scene. Road conditions were poor at the time of the accident.
