Truck Accident Kills One in Colorado
A passenger in a car was killed when the vehicle he was riding in was clipped by a semi trailer on I-25, near the city of Lonetree, Colorado on March 28.
According to Colorado law enforcement, the truck accident occurred around 10:45 pm in the northbound lanes of I-25. A semi with an empty trailer was changing lanes when it clipped a Toyota Solaris. The driver of the Solaris lost control, left the highway and rolled several times and came to rest near a wildlife fence.
Officers arrived to find a passerby giving CPR to the passenger in the car. He was pronounced dead there on the side of the highway. The driver of the Solaris was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Both people in the car were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the truck accident.
The truck driver cooperated with police and was released. It is not believed drugs or alcohol was involved. Just another one of those things, as they say.

Motor Vehicle Accident Kills 5 in Louisiana
Five people, including three children, were killed in a head-on collision on March 6 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. According to police and witnesses, the five victims were inside a vehicle that caught fire after it was struck by a pickup truck on I-10 East. The driver of the pickup truck survived the accident, while his passenger remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
A total of four vehicles were involved in the auto accident that began when a 2005 GMC pickup and a 2001 Mercedes SUV traveling west collided. It is believed they were involved in some kind of road rage incident with the pickup following the SUV closely at a high rate of speed. The pickup clipped the SUV and crossed the median where it spun and sideswiped the trailer of a semi. The pickup then plowed into a 1997 Acura that immediately caught fire on impact. The pickup split in two on the shoulder of the highway.
Police have said there was a bottle of liquor found in the pickup and that toxicology tests are pending.
