JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colorado — A 53-year-old woman was killed in a crash involving two vehicles in the westbound lanes of Interstate 70 Monday, the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) said.
The crash happened at 10:32 a.m. in the westbound lanes of the interstate at mile marker 259, which is just west of C-470.
Four people were involved in the crash, which involved a 2014 Jeep and a 2007 Mercedes. CSP said the Mercedes was in the left lane slowing down or stopped and the driver of the Jeep hit the rear of the car.
The driver of the Mercedes, a 55-year-old woman from Denver, is in serious condition and was taken to the hospital. The passenger died in the crash, according to CSP Trooper Josh Lewis.
The two people in the Jeep weren't injured, Lewis said.
Lewis said there were no drugs or alcohol involved and no charges have been filed.
Westbound lanes of I-70 were closed between C-470 and exit 259 due to the crash, the Colorado Department of Transportation said. Westbound C-470 to westbound I-70 was also closed, CSP said.
All lanes reopened at 1:37 p.m.
