HARTSEL, Colo. (KKTV) - A driver was killed Sunday after flipping his Jeep twice and crashing into a barbed wire fence.
The crash happened a mile from Hartsel on County Road 59 just before 7 a.m.
According to State Patrol, the driver went off the right side of the road, oversteered trying to right himself and drove off the left side of the road for more than 600 feet. He got himself back onto the roadway but oversteered again and rolled his Jeep twice. The driver was thrown from the Jeep while the vehicle kept going, eventually hitting the barbed wire fence.
The driver has been identified as 44-year-old Andrew Davison, of Hartsel. He was reportedly not wearing a seat belt.
The crash remains under investigation, but State Patrol says it believes Davison got distracted, and that's what led to the crash.
