Colorado State Patrol says a Grand Junction man died after a two vehicle crash on I-70 between Silt and Rifle Monday afternoon.

Troopers say 32-year-old Ryan Legg of Grand Junction died at a Rifle medical center after being ejected from his Toyota Tacoma around 12:30 p.m. Monday.

The accident, near milemarker 95, was between a Jeep Cherokee pulling a trailer and Legg's Tacoma. Troopers say Legg was passing the Jeep when the driver, Wayne Good of Centennial, swerved into Legg's truck causing him to lose control then roll two and a half times. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected.

Troopers say the Jeep rolled 1 1/4 times, seriously injuring 33-year-old Wayne Good who was wearing his seatbelt. The other passengers in his car, 37-year-old Wendy Good, 10-year-old Zach Good and 8-year-old Kari Good were also wearing their seatbelts and suffered moderate injuries in the crash and were taken to a Glenwood hospital.

Alcohol, drugs and speed were not factors in the crash. Troopers are charging Wayne Good with Carless Driving Causing Death and Careless Driving Causing Bodilly Injury.
