COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The El Paso County Coroner's Office has released the identifications of the three people who were killed along I-25 last weekend.

According to the coroner's office, the ages and names of those who died are:

  • Joel Montalvo, 64
  • Dalisse Rivera-Albino, 37
  • Heidi Jackson, 46

The accident along northbound I-25 in the early morning hours Sunday occurred after a driver heading southbound in the northbound lanes crashed into another vehicle head-on.
The driver who was driving the wrong way was taken to a hospital where they died of their injuries, the other driver was dead at the scene.

At this time, it is unclear if Jackson or Rivera-Albino was the wrong-way driver.

Following the accident, Montalvo stopped and attempted to help the crash victims. During this, Montalvo was hit by one of the drivers heading northbound and killed.
