Two librarians from Old Greenwich, Conn., were killed Wednesday morning on their way home from a library conference in Denver when the van taking them to the airport was hit and rolled off Peña Boulevard.
The woman identified as the driver of the pickup that sideswiped their Freedom Cab van and then fled the scene was in jail Wednesday night, facing charges of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence of alcohol.
Denver authorities had not confirmed the names of the victims, but family members and co-workers at the Perrot Memorial Library said the women were youth librarian Kathy Krasniewicz, 54, and the library's former youth-services director, Kate McClelland, 71.
