Three people killed in Larimer County crash

Three people were killed in a Larimer County crash on U.S. 287 Saturday evening, according to Colorado State Patrol.

A 21-year-old man, 18-year-old woman and 19-year-old woman died in the two-vehicle crash around 6:45 p.m. Saturday, Cpl. Ivan Alvarado said Sunday. They were on a stretch of the highway a few miles south of the Wyoming border, near mile marker 376.

The 21-year-old man was driving a Subaru Forester southbound when he lost control on the icy road and the car shifted into the path of an oncoming Hyundai Elantra with four people inside.

The Elantra T-boned the Subaru, killing the Subaru’s driver and two women in the Elantra. The driver of the Elantra survived with minor injuries, and the fourth person in the car, a 21-year-old man, was seriously injured.

The victims have not yet been publicly identified. All involved were wearing seatbelts except for one of the women who died, Alvarado said.

The road was shut down for several hours after the crash.
