Wesley Buchholz, 48, of Delta was fatally injured in a one-car accident that was reported Saturday, Feb. 8, shortly after 10 a.m.
The Colorado State Patrol reports Buchholz was northbound on Tessman Road west of Delta and about a half mile north of D Road.
He was attempting to negotiate a corner when his 2010 Chevy Cobalt left the right side of the road and slid down a steep embankment. The Chevy hit a fence post and a bush before coming to rest. Buchholz, who was not wearing a seat belt, died at the scene. He was the vehicle's only occupant.
Trooper Darel Reed, the investigating officer, said alcohol was a contributing factor.blog comments powered by Disqus
