UPDATE: Colorado State Patrol has tweeted that Colorado 67 has reoponed after a fatal wreck Tuesday.


A fatal wreck closed all lanes of Colorado 67 between Cripple Creek and Divide, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The crash, which involved a Colorado Department of Transportation snow plow, happened at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday about 12 miles south of Divide, state patrol Capt. Charles Cargin said.

A pickup truck on Highway 67 lost control on a sweeping right turn, hitting the blade of the snow plow, Cargin said. The driver of the pickup died at the scene, Cargin said.

Transportation officials confirmed the plow was doing snow removal work when the crash occurred.

"We know that a vehicle collided with our snow plow, but we don't know what the details of the crash are," said transportation spokeswoman Amy Ford. "We are sending our supervisors to investigate the scene and coordinate with state patrol responders."

All traffic is being rerouted through Four Mile Road; drivers should expect delays.
