WELD COUNTY, Colo. — Four people were taken to the hospital following a two-vehicle crash in Weld County Monday.

The crash happened at the intersection of Weld County Road 34 and Colorado Boulevard at around 4:38 p.m.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Gabriel Moltrer told Denver7 the crash involved two vehicles: A Jeep Grand Cherokee and a GMC Sierra.

A preliminary investigation into the crash showed that the driver of the Jeep was going east on WCR 34 near the intersection with WCR 13 when they "proceeded from a stop and failed to yield the right of way," causing the left rear of the Jeep to get struck by the person driving by GMC Sierra. The Jeep then rotated clockwise and went off the road, rolling several times into a grassy area. The GMC Sierra, Moltrer said, "pulled to the right shoulder under its own power."

Moltrer was only able to release information about two of the four people who were injured in Monday's crash. The driver of the Jeep was identified as a 23-year-old man from Lakewood who was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. He was taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Little is known about the driver of the GMC Sierra, with Moltrer saying they believe he is a 66-year-old man who suffered no injuries in the crash.

Tickets were issued to the driver of the Jeep, Moltrer said, but he would not disclose what he was cited for. Alcohol, drugs, or speed are not believed to be factors in the crash.

Colorado State Patrol is leading the investigation into the crash.
