3 Killed On I-70 In Crash In Glenwood Canyon

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – The Colorado State Patrol says three people are dead after the Audi they were riding in collided head on with a semitrailer on Interstate 70 in Glenwood Canyon.

Construction in the canyon has shifted all eastbound traffic on I-70 into the normal westbound lanes, creating one eastbound lane and one westbound lane of traffic.

Troopers say an Audi was heading east in a westbound lane about 5:30 a.m. Sunday when it collided with the semitrailer about 13 miles east of Glenwood Springs. Troopers say two females and one male in the Audi were killed. The semitrailer driver wasn’t hurt.
