LAMAR, Colo. (AP) – The Colorado State Patrol is investigating a fatal crash on U.S. 50, about four miles east of Lamar.

Owens died at the scene. Troopers say his passenger, 28-year-old Peter Kraft of Canon City, was taken to a hospital with a serious injury.

The tractor-trailer driver wasn’t injured.
