Woman killed in rollover

Staff report

A Paonia woman died Sunday when her minivan rolled on Colorado 133.

Betsy Smith, 34, was the sole occupant of the vehicle, which according to the Colorado State Patrol’s preliminary information, went off the right side of the roadway, spun out of control and went back onto the road, before going across both lanes and off the side, where it rolled.

Smith was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Speed and alcohol are being investigated as possible contributing factors, the CSP said.
