David A. Lucero, 25, died in early morning head-on collision.

A 25-year-old Pueblo man was killed early Saturday in a head-on, two-car accident on U.S. 50 east of Pueblo.

The deceased was identified as David A. Lucero, according to Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer.

Lucero died at the scene of the crash, Kramer said, which took place at 3:10 a.m. on U.S. 50 near 59th Lane, about 18 miles east of the city.

Lucero was driving a 1995 Honda Passport westbound in the eastbound lanes of traffic when it crashed head-on with a 1998 Dodge Ram truck, driven by 47-year-old Puebloan Douglas Cochran, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

"Pending toxicology results, alcohol/drug involvement for the driver of the Honda is unknown," the patrol said in a press release.

Cochran was delivering Saturday editions of The Chieftain to the Arkansas Valley when he was struck head-on, said Kramer.

Cochran was treated for minor injuries and was released from St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center, the patrol said.

Both victims wore seat belts and Cochran's air bag deployed during the crash, the patrol said.

After Lucero's Honda ran into Cochran's truck, the Honda continued going west while rotating counterclockwise, the patrol said.

The Honda came to rest on its wheels on the north side of the road, the patrol said. The Dodge continued eastbound and came to rest on its wheels facing northeast on the southern paved shoulder, the patrol said.

Investigators could not be reached for further questioning late Saturday.
