A Colorado man died a day after a crash in a Colorado Springs construction zone.

Colorado Springs police say Joseph Quinones of Lakewood was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash on Friday at about 4:16 p.m. Investigators believe Quinones was a backseat passenger when the car crashed into a construction crane in the area of Ridge Road and West Pikes Peak Avenue just to the west of Old Colorado City.

Police say the driver was traveling southbound and crashed through a barricade that stated Ridge Road was closed. Construction workers had just cleared the area five minute prior.

Quinones died on Saturday. Two other people were seriously injured in the crash including the driver.

Investigators don't believe alcohol is a factor in the crash. Authorities ask anyone who witnessed the crash to call 719-444-7000.
