JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — A fiery, head-on crash involving a semi-truck and two passenger vehicles led to one death on Highway 93 south of Highway 72.
The crash was reported at 7:35 a.m., according to Colorado State Patrol Trooper Josh Lewis.
A 2008 Kenworth semi-truck with a trailer, a 2009 Volvo SUV and a 2008 Volvo were involved in a crash. One person in the SUV was killed. No other injuries were reported.
The semi-truck caught fire as a result of the crash.
Both directions of Highway 93 were closed between Highway 72 and Indian Head Road for about seven hours.
No further details were immediately available.
For now Hwy 93 is closed between Hwy 72 and 82nd Ave. I would not be surprised if they close it NB at 64th later on. Indian to the east gets you around it. pic.twitter.com/ELj2o43XIX— Jayson Luber (@Denver7Traffic) March 29, 2022
