Crash Victim Dies

At around 4:00 Thursday evening a pick-up truck crashed into a semi truck carrying a crane on I–70 just outside Mack.

Authorities have not released the name of the victim but 11 News has learned Doug Little died at St. Mary's hospital a short time after the crash.

Rescue crews say this is a tragic outcome but they say they did their best to save him. Several tons of weight on top of the victim made it difficult for firefighters to free him.

It's unclear what caused the crash and the Colorado State Patrol is investigating.

Family and friends say Little loved country music and dancing and was a very giving person.

The driver of the semi wasn't hurt.
