PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) – The Colorado State Patrol is looking for a driver who fled the scene of a fatal crash near Cuchara in Huerfano County.

Trooper Art Gumke says 25-year-old Ambre Cassio, of Pueblo, was killed when the pickup truck she was in went off the side of Colorado 12, crashed into a tree and rolled onto its roof late Saturday.

Investigators believe alcohol was involved in the crash. It’s unclear what injuries the driver might have.
