COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Colorado Springs Police are reporting at least one person died following a crash on Friday along Austin Bluffs Parkway.

The crash was reported just after 11:30 in the morning near Rangewood Drive and involved five vehicles.

“The investigation revealed a white Ford F150 was Northbound on Austin Bluffs Parkway when it shifted into the left turn lanes and failed to stop before striking a blue Honda Civic,” part of a news release from the police department issued on Monday reads. “The two vehicles then collided with other vehicles in the intersection. The Honda Civic appeared to be stopped waiting to make a left turn onto Rangewood Drive.”

Two drivers were taken to the hospital. The driver of the Honda Civic passed away over the weekend.

“Speed does appear to be a factor in this crash, and it is unclear at this time if drugs were involved, but alcohol does not appear to be a factor,” the news release adds. “The investigation is ongoing, and no arrests are pending currently.”

The person who passed was identified as 69-year-old Wolfgang Lampert from Colorado Springs.
