LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — Three people are dead and another was taken to a hospital with serious injuries after a two-vehicle crash Saturday on an icy road in Larimer County.

According to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP), a Subaru Forester lost control and slid on ice about 4:45 p.m. Saturday on Highway 287. This lead to a Hyundai Elantra T-boning the Subaru. The crash occurred at mile marker 376, which was about nine miles south of the Wyoming state line.

The 21-year-old male driver of the Subaru died, as did two passengers in that vehicle: an 18-year-old woman and a 19-year-old woman, CSP said on Sunday.

The driver of the Hyundai, an 18-year-old woman, had minor injuries. A 21-year-old male passenger in that vehicle was transported by ambulance to a hospital, CSP said.

The Colorado Department of Transportation said Highway 287 was closed in both directions at Owl Canyon Road, but it has since reopened.
