Crash in Edwards Takes One Life, Injures Three Others

fatal-300One man died and three others were seriously injured in a rollover crash near Edwards yesterday. The names of those involved are being held pending identification and notification of their families.  The crash, which occurred near the intersection of Red Canyon Road and Hillcrest Drive in Edwards, is suspected to have happened either late Monday night or early Tuesday morning. Evidence shows that a 2005 silver Audi sedan was traveling eastbound on Red Canyon Road when the driver lost control and drove off the road. The vehicle then vaulted over Hillcrest Drive and overturned multiple times, landing near the entrance to the Lake Creek Village Apartments.  One male was pronounced dead on scene, and three other male occupants – including the suspected driver – were transported to Vail Valley Medical Center. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but alcohol and excessive speed are being investigated as possible contributing factors. It appears as though the deceased male was not wearing his seat belt.
