HUERFANO COUNTY — Colorado State Patrol says one person has died in a crash on Highway 10, about 39 miles east of Walsenburg.

It happened just before 7:30 Friday morning.

CSP says a car was traveling east on Highway 10 when it lost control on a curve, went off the shoulder, and hit and embankment.

The car rolled once and ended up on its tires on the side of the road.

The driver, Christian Marcos Vigil, 44 from Manzanola, died at the scene.

CSP says Vigil was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash, and that so far drugs, alcohol, and speed do not appear to be factors.

The crash is still under investigation.
