Colorado State Patrol is investigating a fatal crash outside Pueblo.

According to Colorado State Patrol, it happened a little before 2 a.m. Friday on Highway 50, about 2 miles west of Pueblo.

Troopers say the victim has been identified as 29-year-old Joseph Vigil from Pueblo West. He was heading west on Highway 50 in a Honda Civic, when he drifted partially off the left side of the road. He sideswiped a post, then over-corrected, rotating into the median.

Troopers say the Honda rolled, throwing Vigil from the car. The Honda ended up on its side in the eastbound lane. Vigil was pronounced dead at the scene.

Colorado State Patrol officers say alcohol is suspected as a contributing factor in the crash.
