Fatal crash at First Street and County Road 10E

Special to the Surveyor

On Friday, April 6, a crash involving a passenger car and a pickup truck occurred at the intersection of First Street and County Road 10E in Berthoud. The crash resulted in one fatality.

The investigation thus far has revealed a blue 2005 Toyota Corolla, driven by a 20-year-old Fort Collins woman, was travelling eastbound on County Road 10E and making a left turn northbound onto First Street. A black 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 driven by a 34-year-old Berthoud male, was travelling southbound on First Street. The pickup struck the car on the driver’s door.

The driver of the Toyota was declared dead at the scene. An adult male passenger in the Toyota was transported to an area hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries. The driver and sole occupant of the Dodge pickup was not injured. The Larimer County Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the woman who died after next of kin notifications are made.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office CRASH Team responded to investigate and the intersection remained closed for approximately four-and-a-half hours. The crash investigation is ongoing and investigators do not suspect drugs and/or alcohol as contributing factors. When the investigation is complete, investigators will screen the case with the Larimer County District Attorney to determine if any criminal charges will be sought.

Anyone who witnessed this crash and has not already spoken to deputies is asked to call Deputy Steve Wicker at 970-498-5532.
