Sounding like one fatality also.

Larimer County U/D: PFA Truck-5 requested back to the scene to extricate the fatality.

A 52-year-old Fort Collins man was killed Thursday morning

A 52-year-old Fort Collins man was killed Thursday morning and his 51-year-old sister injured when a tow truck hit their sport utility vehicle, causing it to roll off the road.

Westbound Mulberry Street was closed as emergency crews extricated the man and woman from the 1997 Toyota 4Runner he was driving. The driver of the 1999 Ford flatbed tow truck, 45-year-old Gregory Trammell of Windsor, suffered minor injuries and refused treatment, said Trooper Brett Mulnix of the Colorado State Patrol. The names of the victims were not released.

The crash happened at 10:58 a.m. after the 4Runner turned right from Camino Real onto westbound Mulberry in an acceleration lane. The tow truck, which Trammell had been driving in a right-turn lane that became the acceleration lane, rear-ended the 4Runner, Mulnix said. The 4Runner went off the north side of Mulberry and rolled once, trapping the driver and passenger.

The 4Runner was going 5 to 10 miles per hour at the time of the accident, Mulnix said.

Authorities do not suspect that drugs, alcohol or excessive speed were factors in the crash, Mulnix said. Trammell might have been “preoccupied” or “not paying attention” to the lane he was in, Mulnix said.

Trammell is expected to be charged with careless driving causing death and careless driving causing injury. He also could face other charges, Mulnix said.

LARIMER COUNTY - A 52-year-old Fort Collins man and his dog were killed in a two vehicle crash as they were headed to a grooming appointment Thursday morning.

The Colorado State Patrol says a white 1999 Ford flatbed tow truck was heading west on Highway 14 around 11 a.m. when it went through the right turn lane and hit a 1997 Toyota 4Runner.

State Patrol says the 4Runner rolled and the tow truck hit a fence and tree before stopping.

The driver of the 4Runner, 52-year-old David Blakey of Fort Collins, was partially ejected and pronounced dead at the scene, according to troopers.

The passenger in the 4Runner, 51-year-old Rae Blakey of Fort Collins, was transported to Poudre Valley Hospital with serious injuries.

A trooper at the scene says the Blakeys were taking their dog to a grooming appointment when the crash happened. The dog died from the injuries it suffered in the crash, according to state patrol.

The driver of the tow truck, 45-year-old Gregory Trammell of Windsor, sustained minor injuries and was treated and released at the scene.

State patrol says charges are pending based on the outcome of an investigation.
