On February 16, 2023, at approximately 6:19 a.m., officers responded to a report of a roll-over traffic accident in the 5900 block of southbound I-25 near the Dillon Drive exit (mile marker 104).
When officers arrived, they observed a vehicle upside down in the northbound lanes of the interstate. Officers located a deceased adult male in the driver’s seat of the vehicle.
Pueblo Police Traffic Officers and other detectives responded to process the scene.
The investigation revealed the vehicle was southbound on the interstate when the driver lost control on the icy roadway. The vehicle hit a guardrail, went into the air, and rolled onto its top.
Driving too fast for road conditions is the initial suspected cause of the crash.
Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors.
The identity of the deceased individual will be identified by the Pueblo County Coroner’s Office at the appropriate time.
