Not buckling up could have cost a Pueblo woman her life, state troopers say, after a fatal rollover Wednesday morning.
The woman has been identified as 47-year-old Cindy Martinez from Pueblo.
The crash happened at 6:21 a.m. on northbound I-25 just south of the Pikes Peak International Raceway (exit 122).
According to State Patrol, a black SUV swerved off the roadway, crashing into two signs and a delineator post. The vehicle rolled, and the driver was ejected.
Troopers say the 47-year-old driver was not wearing a seat belt.
State Patrol is still investigating the cause of the crash, but urge the public to never drive without fastening seat belts.
"Take two seconds and buckle up to save a life...the life saved may be their own," State Patrol said in a statement.
