3 dead in Glenwood Canyon crash

GARFIELD COUNTY, Colo. – Three people died Sunday morning after the vehicle they were traveling in collided with a semi-truck on Interstate 70 near milepost 129 in Glenwood Canyon. The crash happened in a construction zone, so it shut down both eastbound and westbound traffic for approximately four hours. The location of the crash was approximately thirteen miles east of Glenwood Springs.

At about 5:30 a.m., a 2006 Audi was traveling eastbound in the westbound lane and a King Soopers semi-truck was traveling westbound when they collided head on near milepost 129 on I-70. All three Audi occupants – two females and one male, whose names are being held pending notification of the families – died on scene. The semi driver was uninjured. The roads were wet at the time of the crash, and the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

The current road construction in Glenwood Canyon has shifted all Interstate 70 eastbound traffic into the normal westbound travel lanes, creating one eastbound lane of traffic and one westbound lane of traffic. The construction zone is on going over a six-mile stretch of Glenwood Canyon. During the closure, westbound traffic was diverted at Dotsero and eastbound traffic was diverted at Glenwood Springs.

The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, the Garfield County Coroner’s Office, the Gypsum Fire Department, the Eagle County Ambulance District and the Colorado Department of Transportation responded to the scene with the Colorado State Patrol.

The Garfield County Coroner’s office should be contacted to obtain the information of the occupants from the Audi.
