Mom killed in downtown Denver by allegedly drunk driver recalled

LITTLETON – The family of Becca Bingham should have been celebrating her 40th birthday.Instead, family and friends gathered Friday at Bingham’s favorite charity, Project CURE, to remember her by volunteering. It is the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies to developing countries.Last November, the same week she was organizing meals for AIDS patients, Bingham and her two children were killed when they were hit by an allegedly drunk hit-and-run driver in downtown Denver.”All of us just wanted to come together to give to her, and this would have been something that would have been on her heart,” said friend Dana Walden.”Becca’s husband, Frank, friends and family spent the day sorting and packing medical supplies at the Project Cure warehouse.Her elder sister, Sarah McMullen, said they chose Project Cure “because Becca was a giver and because she cared. She genuinely cared about people in need, people she knew and people she didn’t know.”Lawrence Trujillo, 36, faces three counts of felony vehicular homicide and other charges.
