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.
