Two dead in crash near Westcliffe

Two people are dead in a multi-vehicle accident just south of Westcliffe on Highway 69.

A semi-trailer truck was involved, along with five other vehicles.  State Troopers at the scene tell News 5 the truck driver is dead, along with one other person. 

Three people were injured.  Two were flown to hospitals, a third was taken to a hospital in an ambulance.

The accident happened about a mile south of Westcliffe.  There is a road construction project in the area that covers about 9 miles south of Westcliffe.  That project includes adding shoulders to the road because it is so narrow.

The accident happened about 1:20 p.m. and the road is still closed.

We'll bring you more on this story at 11 p.m. on News 5 after the Olympics.
