Woman killed in head-on crash on I70

KUSA - Westbound Interstate 70 was closed for several hours following a fatal crash near Denver West Boulevard Saturday morning.

Lakewood Police say a white Dodge Neon was travelling eastbound on I-70 when the driver lost control, crossed the center median, and collided head on with a Dodge pickup truck that was travelling west.

The 20-year-old woman driving the Neon died at the scene. A child in the Dodge truck was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries, largely for precautionary reasons. Others in the truck were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Investigators don't believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, but are waiting for toxicology results before making a final determination.

While the accident was being investigated, westbound I-70 was closed for about four and a half hours. Eastbound I-70 was also closed briefly.
