A crash in southeastern Colorado has claimed 4 lives as of Wednesday afternoon. Colorado State Patrol was called to mile marker 40 on Highway 287 between Springfield and Lamar for the multi-car crash around 6 a.m.

CSP confirms two people died at the scene while four patients were taken to the nearest hospital. Two more patients died while undergoing treatment.

The highway was closed until 12:30 p.m. for cleanup of the crash which sparked a fire along the road. 

Troopers said a 2002 Chevy Silverado traveling northbound on Hwy. 287, crashing into three other cars that were traveling southbound around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. Troopers said the truck first swiped a Kia STL, then continued northbound in the southbound lanes and hit a Hyundai Elantrra that was traveling behind the Kia, and then collided head on with a Ford Ranger.

The Silverado and the Ranger both flipped after the crash. The Silverado caught on fire.

Troopers said 34-year-old Craig Norberg and 63-year-old Wendy Norberg both from Del City, Okla. were driving the Ford and were killed in the crash. The two other people traveling in the Silverado have not been identified.

Four other people who were riding in the Hyundai and the Kia were taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
