One person is dead after a single-car roll over accident on I-25 southbound near South Academy Blvd. early this morning.
Pamela McCullom, 42, of Fountain, was not wearing a seatbelt, and was ejected from the car as it rolled. She was transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
McCollum was driving south, when she went over the shoulder, into the center median. When she tried to regain control, the vehicle began to roll.
The two other passengers, Emony Whiteley, 10, and Kirsten Smith, 13, were also ejected from the car. They were transported to a local hospital, and are being treated with moderate, but non-life threatening injuries.
It is not known whether alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.
