Rollover Crash on I-70 Kills One, Injures Another

A one car rollover crash on Interstate 70 killed one person Sunday and left another seriously injured.

The accident happened near Mile Marker 68 in the westbound lanes of the highway at around 3:30 in the afternoon.

Colorado State Patrol says it looks like the jeep was failed to negotiate a curve then over-corrected before rolling off the road.

A woman and man were ejected. The man was pronounced dead on scene. The woman was rushed to St. Mary's Hospital.

The names of both people are not being released at this time.

State Patrol says alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
