The Colorado State Patrol has identified a man who died as a result of the latest snowstorm.

The patrol says tow-truck driver Joe C. Tatenhorst was killed after a motorist slid out of control and struck him and his parked truck.

The Colorado Division of Emergency Management says the 60-year-old from Burlington was struck at 10:30 last night when he was trying to load a car onto his tow truck.

Authorities say the motorist was westbound at 40 to 50 miles an hour on Interstate-70 about two miles east of Burlington when he lost control and hit Tatenhorst.

Authorities say there were four people from Denver in the car. They weren't injured.
