Speed and alcohol are the likely culprits behind a fatal accident overnight, according to the Pueblo Police Department.
Police say a 23-year-old man lost control of his Toyota Camry as he traveled northbound on the I-25 exit ramp at 1:43 a.m.. He collided with a guardrail, which sent his car rolling across eastbound lanes on Highway 50 before crashing into a GMC Yukon. The driver of the Camry was partially ejected and died at the scene.
The four Camry passengers--three women and a man--were all transported to Parkview Hospital. The women are all in serious condition.
The Yukon left the scene of the accident; the driver contacted officers hours later. She and her passenger, both 32-year-old women, sustained minor injuries.
The Yukon driver was arrested after police discovered she had three outstanding warrants.
