GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- One is dead and another is seriously injured after a car slams into a barrier.
The Colorado State Patrol was called into the intersection of 17 1/4 Road and K 3/4 road just after midnight this morning.
Authorities say a mustang went off the road and hit a series of boulders before coming to a rest and that's when the car burst into flames.
Both the driver and passenger of the car were ejected during the crash. One sustained fatal injuries and the other was transported to the hospital. The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
