GREELEY, Colo. – On Thursday, October 6, at 4:17 a.m., the Greeley Police Department was dispatched to a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of 59th Avenue and 10th Street with unknown injuries.
A GMC truck with one 57-year-old male occupant was eastbound on 10th Street. The truck collided with a Kia Soul that was occupied by four people, ages 69, 47, 71 and 25, that was traveling southbound on 59th Avenue. The driver of the truck sustained minor injuries and was treated on scene and released.
Three of the four occupants of the Kia Soul were transported to local hospitals for serious injuries. The 71-year-old male in the Kia Soul later passed away at the hospital later that day. Due to the seriousness of the accident, the Greeley Police Department Traffic Unit responded to the scene to take over the investigation.
Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor in the accident. The identity of the deceased individual will be released by the Weld County Coroner, pending next-of-kin notifications. No criminal charges have been filed against either driver at this time. No additional information will be released today as the investigation is still on-going.
Anyone who witnessed any portion of this incident is asked to please contact Officer B. Little at 970-373-9402 with additional information.
