Pagosa Springs, Colo. (AP) - Authorities want to know why a man killed in a truck accident was carrying two pipe bombs and a load of firewood.
The unusual death of 53-year-old Eino ``Sonny'' W. Murrietta has the Colorado State Patrol trying to figure out where the bombs came from. Murrietta was killed Sunday when he lost control of his 2001
Toyota Tacoma, rolling three times. No one else was hurt.
In the wreckage, authorities found two undetonated pipe bombs along with the firewood. The bombs were safely detonated by law enforcement, with few details about where they came from or why authorities think Murrietta was carrying them.
A spokesman for the Colorado State Patrol told the Durango Herald that an investigation will continue.
