Weld County Truck Accident Leaves One Dead, One Injured

Weld County Truck Accident Leaves One Dead, One Injured

People must be as cautious driving at night as they are during the day. Even though there are fewer cars on the road in the late evening or early morning hours, vehicle crashes can be just as deadly.

Yesterday, in the pre-dawn darkness in Weld County, two semi-trucks collided resulting the death of one driver and injuries to the other driver. The crash happened on the northbound side of US 85 at Weld County Road 8 and closed the roadways due to the resulting fatality and fuel spill. The investigation by the Fort Lupton police indicates that the first truck was driving westbound on County Road 8 and headed across US 85. The driver then stopped the truck for other traffic but the trailer was sticking out into the northbound lanes of travel. The second truck, which was a fuel tanker hauling 4,000 gallons of fuel, was driving north on US 85 and hit the trailer of the first truck. The driver of this second truck died in this wreck.
