TELLER COUNTY — Colorado State Patrol is investigating a serious crash involving two vehicles on Highway 24 that killed one man Tuesday morning.
State patrol said a 64-year-old man in a Subaru Forester was traveling eastbound on Highway 24 when the car drifted into the westbound lanes. A semi driven by a 32-year-old man was traveling westbound at the time and "attempted to avoid a collision," but the trailer was hit by the Subaru.
The westbound lanes of the highway were closed around 9:10 a.m. between Pennsylvania Avenue and Tranquil Acres Road, causing delays in the area.
The road reopened nearly three hours later after the crash was cleaned up.
