Steamboat briefs: Kremmling resident killed in single-car rollover crash
A single-vehicle rollover crash was reported on Colorado Highway 125 near milepost 70, approximately 15 miles northwest of Walden in rural Jackson County, according to a news release from the Colorado State Patrol.
A white 2005, Chevrolet Venture van, driven by Candido Pinedo, of Kremmling, was northbound on Colo. 125 near milepost 70 when it traveled off the right side of the road and down a steep embankment. The van rolled, coming to rest on its roof near the base of the embankment.
Pinedo was pronounced dead on scene by the Jackson County Coroner’s Office, and alcohol impairment is being investigated as a possible contributing factor to the crash.
Pinedo’s age is unknown at this time.
Agencies assisting the Colorado State Patrol with the investigation included the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, North Park Fire/Rescue/Ambulance and the Jackson County Coroner’s Office.
