Head on crash kills teen in Jefferson County
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — A teenager from Arvada died Tuesday afternoon in a head-on crash near Colo. Highway 128 and Indiana St. in unincorporated Jefferson County.
The Colorado State Patrol says a silver 2003 Chrysler Sebring going south on Hwy 128 ended up in the northbound lane and crashed into a white pickup truck at about 1:30 p.m.
The 19-year-old male driver of the Sebring died at the scene. A 64-year-old woman from Conifer who was driving the pickup had minor injuries.
Investigators say it does not look like drugs or alcohol were involved, but it could be a distracted driver case.
