Five Killed in Fatal Accident

By  | 

Parts of Highway 115 in Fremont County were closed Monday afternoon because of a deadly accident. State Patrol troopers say five people were killed in the two-car accident.

It happened at K-street and Highway 115 just North of Penrose.

State troopers say it all started when a sedan drifted to the right and then swerved back into oncoming traffic. That's when it hit a gray pickup head on. Five people were killed instantly and emergency crews say one of the victims was pregnant.

State troopers say all the victims were from Canon City. They have identified three of them but haven't released their names. They are also waiting on toxicology reports.
