According to the Colorado State Patrol, alcohol is suspected in an accident that killed a 16-year-old Delta boy and injured three others June 11. The accident occurred on Highway 65 just a short distance from the Highway 92 intersection at about 1:35 a.m. Ra Do, 23, was driving a 2008 Nissan Sentra southbound on Highway 65 when his vehicle traveled off the right side of the road and hit a fence, then the embankment of a ditch. The vehicle came to rest on its wheels. Two of the accident victims were airlifted to St. Mary's, including Tee Kue, 16, who died at the hospital. The other passengers were Soe Do, 25, who sustained moderate injuries, and Ma Ngea, 22, who suffered serious injuries. Both women are from Delta. Ra Do was transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. Charges are pending.
