Alcohol a Suspected Factor in Northglenn Crash That Killed One

Northglenn, CO -- The Northglenn Police reported that one person died and another sustained severe injuries after a single-vehicle high-speed collision.

The sedan was reportedly traveling down 100th Place near Croke Drive when it slammed into a retaining wall.

The crash’s impact caused the vehicle to become airborne; the car hit a telephone pole, damaged a standing car, and rolled multiple times before coming to a stop.

Both passengers in the sedan were ejected from the vehicle. The man, a 49-year-old, died at the scene. The 42-year-old woman sustained life-threatening injuries, and police transported her to a nearby hospital. 

The Northglenn Police Department reported that neither individual was wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash. Investigators also believe alcohol could have been a factor in the crash. 

Investigators closed West 100th Place around 1:45 AM on Sunday to clean up the crash.
