Truck Carrying High School Band Collides With Semi

By  | 

A pickup truck carrying Alameda High School band members collided with a semitrailer Saturday, killing the pickup truck driver.

The accident occurred north of Mead on northbound Interstate 25 around 6:30 Saturday morning.

State Trooper Gilbert Mares says 36-year-old Andy Padilla of Lakewood died at the scene.

A woman and three teens in the pickup were taken to a hospital in Loveland.

They were heading to a music competition.

The semitrailer driver wasn't injured.

Mares says the pickup truck was pulling a trailer that lost control.

The pickup then veered left, and the semitrailer struck it, sending both vehicles into the median.

The semi landed on top of the pickup.
