I-25 Reopened In Fountain After Deadly Rollover Accident

The Colorado State Patrol is investigating a fatal one-vehicle rollover crash on I-25 in Fountain.

The crash resulted in two fatalities. A 2009 Toyota Corolla sedan was traveling northbound when it went out of control. Troopers say the Toyota traveled across both northbound lanes and rolled 2 times,
blocking both northbound lanes.

The driver, who was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash, was ejected and sustained fatal injuries. His name is being withheld pending notification of next-of-kin.

A passenger in the Toyota, 20-year-old Clark Carter of Colorado Springs, sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash. The other passengers, 20-year-olds Ryan Biddle and Ryan Mitchell-White and 18-year-old Joshua Yates, all of Colorado Springs--were uninjured.

    Both sides have two different stories. One side says the other car was following them and they were trying to get away; the car cut the Corola off and they caused the whole accident. The other side says the opposite side was following them. They were the ones speeding. Ect. Either way, two young men died over the stupidest fight. But for you to say they were the right ones to die? That's just so wrong. And if it was the other car who cut them off and caused the wreck, obviously they're going to jail for manslaughter.

    CONTINUED: When he swerved between the two cars he lost control. My friend was the one who stopped, despite what occured earliey, to call 911 and check everyone was ok. What kills me is that one of them got out of the car, STEPPED OVER his dead friend with NO CONCERN, to ditch a case of beer down the hill! I'm very thankful the car with the family was not hurt, I'm very thankful my friends were not hurt. I'm very thankful this corola full of 5 people didn't have a chance to commit a hanius crime against my friends. But it's idiots like this who cause crimes, and make this world a horrible place to live. I'm sorry someone had to die, but at the end of the day, fate choose the RIGHT persons...

    I would just like to clairify some things since I AM a cold hearted SOB! My friend happened to be there that night, and there's alot more to the story that wasn't broadcast! He was traveling home when this Coroal pulled up next to him swerving at them, throwing up gang signs, HANGING OUT THE WINDOW, and screaming obsinities. They proceeded to pull behind my friend and follow them (as if they had intensions to do more than verbal interactions). My friends in fear (since there was 5 people in the corola) speed up to get away. Once they pulled far enough away and were in the company of another car (family of 5) they slowed down. They thought they had gotten away from this Corola, but the corola was TRAVELING WITH IT'S LIGHTS OFF! They suddenly flashed on and they were traveling 120mph right into the back of the other car. My friend braked, just in time to give enough room for the corola to pass from behind the other car to in front of him.....there litterally was no room!

    I am not saying what the boys were doing was not wrong by all means. I do not drink so highly against it. My point is remarks were made about my daughter about careless driving,not wearing a seatbelt, she was doing drugs Blah Blah Blah. 1. she was driving fast we all have 2. If she were wearing a seatbelt she would have been worse off if she survived (would have only been a body on earth no life for her anyway) 3. took me over a year to read the corners report just to see she had no drugs in her system (didn't think so but she was a kid) as for the infant being killed I would have rather die myself than live everyday knowing I killed some one because I was stupid.

    People come to this website because it is about a news story and debate. My compassion has limits whenever there is a mention of reckless behavior. I guess my opinion changed a couple of years ago when a drunk driver on Powers Blvd plowed into the back of a car at Carefree killing an infant. My compassion is for people like those parents who won't have their child due to recklessness and selfishness.

    I agree with Jim, so I guess I can be accused of being an insensitive SOB as well. I failed to see anything Jim wrote personally about the car's occupants nor would I say anything personally about them since they paid the ultimate price for their mistake/choice. I guess the mistake defense can be used by anyone after the fact when the deed is done no matter what the crime. Drinking and driving = trouble/pain/death/sorrow.
