One teenager is tragically dead following a single-vehicle crash local authorities believe may have been predicated on intoxication. The Colorado State Patrol reported the car accident that claimed the life of a 16-year-old high school student.

Trucks transporting goods on Colorado roadways are vital to maintaining the way of life that people have become accustomed to. Builders rely on trucks to deliver materials needed for projects. The building industry is thriving and the number of trucks on the road has risen to correspond with the needs of the industry. An increase in truck traffic leads to a potential increase in the number of truck accidents.
