As winter rolls into Colorado, drivers should be cautious of slippery roads. Recently, there have been two instances of drivers losing control of their motor vehicles, crashing and dying.
On November 21, a 20 and 18-year-old were driving east in their Mazda on Weld County Road in Weld County. According to the Colorado State Patrol, the road was icy and snow covered. The youths lost control of the Mazda, spun out into the opposite lane of traffic and hit a Ford truck going west. The Ford driver walked away unharmed; however, the driver and passenger of the Mazda died.
On the same day, two men driving south in a 2010 Freightliner with two trailers attached on Interstate 25 in Trinidad, Colorado crashed and died. The driver was 58 and the passenger 57-years-old. While turning, the driver lost control of one of the trailers which tumbled and sent them crashing into the side of the highway. Both died at a nearby hospital.
