The first accident involved 17 year old Thinnakorn Kingman. Kingman was driving too fast when he tried to pass another car, causing his car to roll. Kingman was driving in a marked speed zone of 45 miles per hour and was going over 70 before the crash.
The second accident involved two people, the passenger was a child.
The truck was headed westbound on I-70 when the driver lost control of the vehicle causing it to roll into the eastbound shoulder. One lane was closed while officials cleaned up after the accident. The two occupants were transported to St. Mary's; the driver sustained minor injuries. Officials are not sure if speed was a factor, but do say drugs and alcohol were not involved.
