When 18–year–old Samantha Loy rolled her car on I–70 in February, no passengers were in her car to shed light on exactly what happened, but there were witnesses the to deadly accident, those who called in the accident to dispatchers.

11 News has reviewed those tapes and describes the horror as some of the witnesses described Loy’s smashed up car and her body lying by the side of the road. Frantic calls made to 911 just after 18 year old Samantha Loy rolled her car on Interstate 70, one emergency caller says to dispatchers, "I just saw this car practically in the middle of the road, it looks completely bashed in."

Loy had been texting and had a blood alcohol level of twice the legal limit, “somebody's lying in the ditch, “ another caller tells dispatchers. Loy was not wearing her seat belt when she crashed and was thrown from the driver's side window. Loy was pronounced dead on the scene of that accident.

She was pulled over just twenty minutes before the accident by Fruita police, but they said there were no signs the teen had been drinking. Now Loy's mother and step father are looking into whether they will file a lawsuit against the adults who supplied the liquor to Loy or against the Fruita police department because they didn't give her a roadside sobriety test.
