A man died Friday evening in a two-vehicle crash near East Platte Avenue and Wooten Road, Colorado Springs police said.

The man, whose identity has not been released, was driving east on Platte from Wooten when he swerved into westbound traffic, colliding with a westbound vehicle, police said.

A family of five - two adults and three children - were in the westbound vehicle, said Lt. Kevin Ducy, spokesman for the Colorado Springs Fire Department. The driver of the eastbound vehicle had to be extricated and died at the scene; all of the family members were taken to a local hospital to be evaluated.

The crash happened about 5 p.m.

East Platte Avenue was blocked between Wooten and Babcock roads until late Friday night, police said.
