A Pueblo West man died in an early-morning crash in Pueblo West Saturday morning. Alcohol is suspected to be a contributing factor in the crash.
Colorado State Patrol says John Ceplo, 19, was driving a GMC Yukon westbound on U.S. Highway 50 in Pueblo West just after 6:00 Saturday morning when he drifted off the side of the road, overcorrected, and rolled the SUV onto Enterprise Drive, which runs parallel to Hwy. 50 in Pueblo West. Ceplo was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was partially ejected from the vehicle. He was taken to Parkview Medical Center in Pueblo where he was pronounced dead from his injuries.
State Patrol says alcohol is suspected as a contributing factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
