Colorado State Patrol is investigating after a young man was killed in a single vehicle crash early Saturday morning.

John Ceplo,19, was headed west on Highway 50 near Purcell in Pueblo when his SUV drifted off the side of the road. Troopers say he over corrected and went off the road again, this time rolling his vehicle. Ceplo was partially ejected and taken to the hospital where he died a few hours later.

State Patrol is investigating whether or not alcohol played a role in the accident.

His family tells us he loved basketball and was a funny and kind person. They tell us he graduated from Pueblo West last year.
