The Jeep occupants, driver 18-year-old Anthony Rodrigues of of Platteville, Colorado and the passenger, 59-year-old Manual Cobos of Mexico were standing behind the Jeep when the semi truck came upon the crash and swerved to avoid hitting the Jeep.

The truck clipped the back end of the Jeep and set it spinning, hitting Cobos and killing him. A woman sitting in the back of the Jeep, 61-year-old Cruvella Acosta of Mexico was wearing her seat belt and was flowing to a hospital in Denver.

The Prius driver,35 year-old Orion Buhler of Santa Teresa,New Mexico was not hurt. The driver of the pickup, 66 year-old Douglas Rust of Cody, Wyoming and the semi truck driver, 32 year-old Muamer Cutuk, of Peoria, Arizona also were not hurt.
