Teen Killed In Highway 13 Accident

A teenager was killed early Saturday afternoon in a two vehicle accident on Highway 13, 20 miles south of Meeker. 19 year old Brodie Tiffany of Silt died when the pickup he was driving was struck by a car traveling in the opposite direction. The car being driven by, 71 year old Paul Matson of Centennial, had traveled off the right side of the roadway. Matson then overcorrected sending his car into the oncoming lane colliding with the pickup. Both vehicles were pulling trailers. Matson, two passengers in car and a passenger in the pickup were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation by the Colorado State Patrol. Neither impairment nor excessive speed is suspected as a contributing factor at this time. All of those involved were wearing seat-belts at the time of the accident.  Photo Courtesy of the Colorado State Patrol.  Click to Enlarge.
