Dustin Overturf, 22, of Delta died in a rollover accident that seriously injured two others July 1.
Zachery Smith, 23, of Montrose was driving a 1997 Ford Mustang near 6200 Road and Spring Creek Road in Montrose when the accident occurred at about 2:15 p.m.
The Colorado State Patrol reports Smith was eastbound on Spring Creek Road at a high rate of speed when the Mustang spun out of control, traveled off the left side of the road and up a small ditch bank, then began a roll sequence. The Mustang rolled end over end and side to side multiple times. During the roll sequence all three unrestrained passengers were ejected from the vehicle.
Overturf, the front seat passenger, died at the scene. Smith was transported to a Denver hospital with serious injuries. The rear seat passenger, Tabitha Horlacher, 22, of Montrose, suffered serious injuries and was transported to Montrose Memorial Hospital.blog comments powered by Disqus
