BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A man accused of intentionally crashing his car into a traffic light pole in Boulder to try to kill his girlfriend is close to reaching a plea deal.

The Daily Camera reports (https://goo.gl/M5XHz3 ) 51-year-old George Pappas was set for arraignment Friday, but his attorney asked for a later date because of the possible deal. Pappas is now set to be arraigned June 15.

He was seriously injured in the Oct. 12 crash. His girlfriend was hurt but was able to walk away from the crash.

According to an arrest affidavit, the woman said Pappas reached over and unbuckled her seat belt and then began driving erratically. She was able to re-buckle before the crash.

Police say witnesses heard both Pappas and the girlfriend say that Pappas was trying to kill her.
