Man Sentenced in Vehicular Homicide Death of Teen in Westminster

Elliot Bond

Elliott Hayden Bond, DOB: 5-12-93, appeared in Jefferson County District Court on May 30th where he was sentenced to five years in Community Corrections for the vehicular homicide death of 15-year-old Andrew Potter in Westminster on August 31, 2018. 

“We are very disappointed in the outcome of this case. Mr. Bond had a BAC of .189 when he hit and killed this 15-year-old boy who was crossing the street. He then left him in the street, so that he would not get caught,” said DA Pete Weir, “He could have been sentenced to 24 years in prison. Our prosecutor asked for 12 years, instead Mr. Bond was given a sentence to community corrections.”

Westminster police were called to the intersection of Church Ranch and Wadsworth Parkway regarding a possible hit and run. The victim, Andrew Potter, died of his injuries at the scene.  Police identified and located the suspect vehicle and its driver, Mr. Bond.  Mr. Bond had been driving southbound on Wadsworth Parkway when he struck Andrew Potter who was crossing against the light at Church Ranch. Bond failed to stop and render aid or notify police. He continued to drive south on Wadsworth Parkway until he was contacted by police as he turned at Independence. 

On April 2, 2019 Mr. Bond pled guilty to Vehicular Homicide – DUI (F3) and Leaving the Scene of an Accident with Death (F3).
