Two people die in crash on Interstate 70 near East Colfax Avenue.


Two people died early Saturday morning in a crash on Interstate 70 involving a semi truck and an SUV.

The crash happened at about 3:10 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the highway near East Colfax Avenue, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

A 2006 Infiniti was heading east with four people in the vehicle when the driver lost control and it rolled, coming to a rest on the highway on its roof, said Sgt. Troy Kessler, of the CSP. The driver of the Infiniti was ejected from the SUV.

A semi truck heading east came upon the crash and the semi driver tried to avoid the wreckage, Kessler said. The four people who had been in the Infiniti had gotten out of the vehicle, the truck hit the SUV driver and a passenger, who both died at the scene. The other two people who had been in the Infiniti when it rolled were taken to a local hospital. The crash remains under investigation.
