The massive blizzard struck Colorado and Wyoming on Wednesday. It contributed to the death of Daniel Groves, a Colorado State Patrol officer who was killed by a car as he helped another driver who had slid off Interstate 76 in Weld County.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s office says a caller reported that Brantley had gone out during the blizzard to start a generator at another building on the property and did not come back.

The cause of Brantley’s death has not been determined.
