Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Authorities are investigating a fatal crash in Black Forest after the upturned car was found early Saturday morning.
Troopers got to the accident site on Black Forest Road and Beulah Street shortly before 6 a.m., but told 11 News they don't know when the crash actually occurred. They are waiting on a coroner to determine time of death.
State Patrol tells 11 News that based on the evidence at the scene, it appears the driver was headed south on Black Forest Road when he drove off the road. He then appears to have overcorrected, which caused him to hit a dirt embankment. His vehicle then rolled several times. The driver was ejected.
The driver has been identified as 23-year-old Jessie Boos of Larkspur. Boos was not wearing his seat belt, according to State Patrol.
The crash remains under investigation. Troopers are investigating the possibility that Boos fell asleep at the wheel.
