Crash injuries 4, kills 1 from Colorado State

Four people were injured in a car accident, and one woman was killed. The woman who passed away had graduated from Colorado State University. Another student from the same school is now being charged in relation to the accident.

The wreck happened near the intersection of Larimer County Road 54G and U.S. Highway 287. Reports indicate that the woman passed away at the scene of the accident.

That woman was just 21 years old. The driver of her car was a graduate student, and she is 25 years old. It is that driver who is facing charges.

It appears that the 25-year-old woman was behind the wheel of a Toyota Prius, going down CR 54G and heading northwest. She got to the stop sign and did stop the car, as she should have. However, she then tried to pull out and turn left, switching to U.S. 287. A Nissan Xterra was already coming down U.S. 287, however, and the Prius pulled out in front of it and was hit.

The impact was to the back of the Prius, on the left side. The smaller car spun and then rolled. The response team found it in the median, flipped up on its top.

The four others who were injured included the driver of the Prius and three passengers who survived. Some of their injuries were quite serious, however, and one had to be taken to the Medical Center of the Rockies by helicopter.

The driver of the other car is 25 years old, a young man from Fort Collins, and he wasn't hurt.

Those who have lost loved ones or suffered injuries in car accidents may be able to seek compensation.
