GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (KKCO) -- A teen driver under the influence of alcohol played a sad role in a fatal crash on Interstate 70, according to Colorado State Patrol.
Early on April 14, a 2006 Audi carrying three people was traveling eastbound when it collided head-on with a westbound King Soopers semi-truck near milemarker 129, about 13 miles east of Glenwood Springs.
All three people inside the Audi died: 16-year-old Jennifer Nevarez, 24-year-old Albino Ortiz-Monge and 18-year-old Brianda Zavala, the driver.
The driver of the semi-truck was not injured at the time.
CSP notes that the roads were wet at the time, but a toxicology report on Zavala shows that she had been driving under the influence of alcohol.
Currently, road construction in Glenwood Canyon has shifted all I-70 eastbound lanes into on of the westbound lanes, condensing it into a two-lane interstate.
The crash had shut down traffic in the area for about four hours.
