A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
A cadet at the Air Force Academy died and another was seriously injured when an SUV they were riding in was broadsided by a pickup truck that ran a stop sign.
Chaney King of Littleton died shortly after the accident last night. Nathan Bertino of Springfield, Virginia, was in critical condition at Penrose Main Hospital.
Colorado State Patrol Trooper Maurice Harris says the accident happened at about10 p.m. at the intersection of Colorado 83 and Palmer Divide Road.
The pickup truck struck the SUV on the passenger side, where King was sitting. Harris says alcohol is not considered a factor.
