6 Year Prison Sentence for Vehicular Homicide in Pine

Roger Fultz

(Golden, CO – June 26, 2020) Roger William Fultz, DOB: 03-20-91, appeared remotely from jail on June 25, 2020 for his sentencing hearing in the vehicular homicide death of 24-year-old Jaylyn Huhn in March, 2019.  Fultz and his attorney appeared remotely, but the family of the victim and law enforcement appeared in person for the hearing. 

Shortly after 8:00 a.m. on March 11, 2019, the Colorado State Patrol was called to the scene of a single vehicle crash on Deckers Road in Pine. The vehicle, a 1993 Chevrolet Silverado, was off the road and had crashed into a large tree. The crash occurred at 3:00 a.m. Mr. Fultz had been the driver of the truck and Ms. Huhn was in the front passenger seat. Fultz had lost control of the vehicle and veered off the right side of the two-lane road. As he attempted to return to his lane he overcorrected and drove the truck across the center of the highway and off the left side of the road, where he was ultimately stopped when he hit a large tree.

Mr. Fultz was conscious in the truck the next morning when he was seen by a citizen who lived in the area. Ms. Huhn was found deceased in the cab of the truck. 

Mr. Fultz had a BAC of .154. He also had cocaine and THC in his system near the time of the crash.

“Ms. Huhn’s death was tragic and preventable,” said DA Pete Weir, “The Colorado State Patrol did an outstanding job in this investigation which brought us a long way towards bringing justice for Jaylyn and her family.”

Mr. Fultz pled guilty to Vehicular Homicide – DUI (F3) on May 4, 2020.
