DENVER (AP/CBS4) – Authorities say two young adults are dead following a two-vehicle crash just west of Berthoud.
Larimer County Sheriff’s Office spokesman John Schulz says the crash occurred late Friday at U.S. 287 and Colorado 56.
The collision happened after a Toyota Corolla driven by an 18-year-old Denver woman apparently turned left in front of an Chevy Tahoe.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and her 20-year-old male passenger was rushed to a hospital where he died.
The SUV flipped onto its roof and one occupant was ejected, but wasn’t seriously injured. The three others in the vehicle were treated for minor injuries.
No names were immediately available. It is not believed that drugs or alcohol were involved by the driver of the SUV, but may have been a factor with the driver of the Corolla.
