Feb 3, 2014 - The Associated Press

GREELEY, Colo. -- A 22-year-old man who was determined to have caused an automibile crash in northern Colorado that killed two siblings and an Air Force senior airman has pleaded guilty to careless driving resulting in death.

Anthony Alacca, of Cheyenne, Wyo., pleaded guilty to the single count Friday and is scheduled to be sentenced March 14.

Alacca was driving on U.S. 85 early on the morning of Aug. 15 when he failed to negotiate a curve north of Nunn, sending the vehicle into an access road before it went airborne and rolled at least once.

Killed in the two-car wreck were 21-year-old Michael De La Rosa, 19-year-old Mariah Lynn De La Rosa, both of Cheyenne; and 21-year-old senior airman Michael Gnoato, was stationed at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne.
