On July 9, 2008 at approximately 8:35 A.M., Colorado State Troopers responded to a fatal crash on Highway 79 north of milepost 7 in Adams County. A white 1995 International F-8100 truck was southbound on Highway 79. The vehicle drove off the right side of the road. As the vehicle came back onto the road, it rolled 1/2 time onto its top and slid across Highway

The unrestrained male driver sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Adams County Coroner.

Alcohol or drugs are not suspected as contributing factors.

This crash remains under investigation and an update will follow as more information is obtained.
