Hein-Nutz was heading south when he drove from the stop sign at the intersection into the sheriff’s driveway. She crashed into the passenger side of Gonzalez Garcia’s car and her motorcycle burst into flames.

“We believe the driver of the van was affected at the time, and we have evidence to support that,” said Joshua Lewis of the Colorado Patrol, according to FOX 31.

Police said they found evidence that Gonzalez Garcia was staying illegally. An apparently forged green card and a fake social security card were found in his car.
