Around 12:30 a.m., a pickup truck crashed out west of Fort Collins, Colorado in the unincorporated town of Stout on December 27, according to the Coloradoan. The victims were driving westbound on Larimer 38E, when they approached a right turn. The driver failed to maintain control of the vehicle mid-turn, and the truck spun out to the left across a dirt road and a fence. According to a representative of the Colorado State police, “[the truck] went out of control and went off the left side of the road and rolled multiple times ejecting all four occupants.” The truck destroyed a fence, road sign and a row of mailboxes as it hurtled out of control across private property.
All four passengers were ejected from the truck. One passenger was launched with sufficient force to die upon impact, two were seriously injured and one only sustained minor injuries. Emergency crews arrived and called in a helicopter to transport the two seriously injured passengers to a nearby hospital. The passenger with minor injuries was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
