Police: Man beat driver to death after crash
NORTHGLENN, Colorado ” Northglenn police arrested the stepfather of two teenage siblings killed in a crash on suspicion that he beat to death the driver of the other car after the accident in March.
An arrest affidavit alleges Phillip Chavez assaulted 62-year-old Glenn Ryburn while he was still buckled in his car after the crash. The accident instantly killed 14-year-old Damien Noyes and 13-year-old Angel Noyes, both of Loveland.
Chavez was jailed this week, more than two months after the accident. He was being held on $100,000 bond.
Ryburn never regained consciousness after the crash and died May 16. The coroner ruled his death was the result of blunt force trauma to his head.
Chavez and his family were returning home from a Denver Nuggets game and had pulled to the side of the road on Interstate 25 in Northglenn when they were rear-ended by Ryburn.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
