A driver is facing charges for allegedly driving under the influence of drugs and vehicular homicide after a deadly rollover crash early Sunday morning.
Colorado State Patrol says Anthony Ronzo, 58 of Erie, was driving south on I-25 near the North Academy exit in Colorado Springs when he lost control. The 1999 Ford Explorer spun around before rolling over through the median and onto the N. Academy exit ramp.
Ronzo suffered minor injuries, but his passenger was thrown from the vehicle. Her name has not been released. State patrol says she is 30-years-old and from Denver. She was reportedly not wearing a seat belt.
She was taken to the hospital where she later died.
State Patrol says they suspect prescription drugs were a factor in the crash, but the incident is still under investigation.
The crash happened around 12:15 a.m. Sunday.
