Tomorrow a part of east Rim Rock Drive will be closed for several hours while crews remove a car from Red Canyon

A 120 ton crane will be used to pull this Subaru out.

The vehicle went off the road sometime back in October killing a woman.

The crane will take up both lanes of east Rim Rock Drive and motorists and bicyclists will not be allowed through. Park commuters are asked to use Little Park Road to avoid the closure.

Bad weather has hindered attempts to remove the car in the past. Officials are hoping all goes as planned tomorrow.

The deceased driver's car insurance company is footing bill for the removal. It's expected to cost around $20 thousand.
