A man is dead, and a woman hurt after an accident in Pueblo. It happened just after 11:30 p.m. on I-25 north at the Hwy. 50 Bypass. An off-duty police officer drove up on the accident shortly after it happened.
State troopers say Martin Vasquez, 44, was driving on 25 when he swerved left, over corrected and ran off the road colliding with a light pole. The Chevy Monte Carlo rolled several times and Vasquez was thrown out. A female passenger, Racquel Galves, 39, was also hurt. She's listed in stable condition at Parkview Hospital.
State troopers say they believe alcohol may have been involved. An investigation is underway to determine if he was speeding.
