DENVER, CO - (AP) - The trial for a Colorado woman accused of driving drunk when she caused a crash that killed two Greenwich librarians began Tuesday.

Police say Sandra Jacobson was drunk when she hit the car carrying Kathy Krasniewicz, 54, and Kate McClelland, 71.

Jacobson claims she did not have a drink until after the crash and was distracted by a dog in her car.

The two woman, who were in Denver for a librarians conference, were on their way to the airport to return home when the crash occurred.
