Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a serious crash in Teller County late Friday night.
According to state troopers, the vehicle was traveling north on County Road 81--which is a road near Cripple Creek and Victor--when the driver veered off the roadway. Troopers say when he tried to correct himself, the vehicle spun into a tree and rolled, coming to rest on its roof.
According to State Patrol, driver Dallas Burke, 21, was the only one in the vehicle to be wearing a seat belt and sustained the least severe injuries in the crash. The other two in the vehicle, 22-year-old Miguel Camargo and 21-year-old George Robles, were ejected during the rollover and suffered serious injuries. Robles had to be airlifted to Penrose Hospital in Colorado Springs, while Burke and Camargo were transported via ambulance.
The crash remains under investigation at this time, but troopers suspect alcohol as a contributing factor.
The three crash victims are all from Colorado Springs.
