One Dead In Baca County Crash


Colorado State Patrol says inattentive driving is to blame for a single-vehicle crash in Baca County, just west of Walsh County this weekend.

According to reports, a 2003 Toyota Tundra was traveling east bound on Colorado 160 when the driver went off the left hand side of the road and collided with a post.

After the impact, the driver over corrected and caused the vehicle to spin. At that time, the the Tundra rolled and came to rest on its wheels - facing north.

The driver, identified as Shawn Cogburn, 25, of Walsh, was not wearing his seat belt. When the vehicle rolled, he was ejected. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say inattentive driving was to blame, but they are also awaiting toxicology reports.
