Boulder, CO -- A 49-year-old man died in a three-car crash on Highway 93 on Friday.
The deceased man caused the crash as he drove his 1997 Subaru Outback down the wrong side of the highway.
The Subaru, traveling south in the northbound lanes, collided with a Ford pick-up truck and a Toyota SUV.
The authorities said that the Subaru was initially driving in the northbound lane’s shoulder. Then, the Subaru swerved into the highway’s lanes and collided with the two oncoming vehicles.
The Colorado State Patrol responded to the crash scene, where they pronounced the Subaru’s driver dead. In addition to the one fatality, the driver of the Ford, a 63-year-old Boulder resident, sustained severe injuries. The passenger in the Ford sustained minor injuries, and the Toyota’s driver was uninjured.
The authorities have not publicly identified any of the involved individuals. A spokesperson for the CSP said that the crash investigation is ongoing, but that speed, drugs, or alcohol are not believed to be crash factors. The spokesperson also stated that authorities have yet to identify why the Subaru was on the highway’s northbound shoulder.
