Few details have been released about a weekend car accident that sent two people to the hospital with serious injuries.

The crash happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of 32 ½ and E Roads.

Colorado State Patrol says a Chevy Trailblazer ran a stop sign and hit a pickup truck.

The impact sent the Trailblazer into a concrete barrier and then caused it to roll.

The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected and the vehicle landed on top of them.

The driver in the pickup had to be extricated.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital. Their conditions and names have not been released.

The crash is still under investigation but officials believe speed and alcohol may have been involved.
