2 dead, 2 injured in I-76 crash, lanes reopened in Brighton

The interstate was closed completely between Eagle Boulevard and Bromley Lane to investigate the single-vehicle rollover crash.

DENVER — Both lanes are back open on Interstate 76 between Eagle Boulevard and Bromley Lane after a crash on the morning of Aug. 28 killed two people and put two others in the hospital, according to authorities.

The Brighton Police Department (BPD) responded to the crash about 7:30 a.m. According to a news release, officers found a single-vehicle crash. Four people were inside: two men and two women.

One woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, one man died on the way to the hospital, and the other two were hospitalized with serious injuries, BPD said.

The victims killed in the crash were identified by the Office of the Coroner for Adams & Broomfield Counties as 52-year-old Kordena Dian Martin, and 29-year-old Damien Justice Martin.

The vehicle, a Chevy Silverado Truck, left the roadway and rolled several times, BPD said.

On Tuesday, BPD said that the vehicle was traveling from New York to Arizona and that three of the occupants were thrown from the truck when it rolled.

The early investigation shows that possible fatigue and drugs were factors in the crash, BPD said in a news release.

The eastbound lanes of I-76 were closed while investigators finished conducting their investigation and reopened around 1:22 p.m.

BPD said they were not releasing the identities of those involved at this time. 

CDOT said they detoured traffic using on and off-ramps. Travelers can monitor COtrip.org for road closure information.
