[FORT COLLINS, COLORADO] – A tragic head-on collision on U.S. 287 occurred June 7, 2023

[FORT COLLINS, COLORADO] – A tragic head-on collision on U.S. 287 occurred June 7, 2023, resulting in the deaths of a 57-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman, according to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP). The incident, which took place northwest of Fort Collins near mile marker 371, also left a 14-year-old boy with severe injuries. The highway remained closed for over three hours following the accident.

The CSP spokesperson, Trooper Gabriel Moltrer, reported that the woman, accompanied by the teenage boy, was traveling in a Dodge Rambler when the collision transpired. The boy was airlifted via helicopter to a nearby hospital to receive medical attention. The male driver, operating a Subaru Outback, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities were alerted to the crash shortly before 6:45 a.m., prompting the closure of both lanes on U.S. 287. It wasn’t until 10:21 a.m. that one lane was reopened to traffic, allowing the movement of vehicles through the area.

The investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing, with authorities yet to ascertain the factors contributing to the accident.

Burnham Law sends its condolences to the family and friends of the deceased and hopes for a full recovery of the teen.
