The Gunnison woman who died in a crash 13 miles west of Cañon City on Tuesday has been identified as 28-year-old Emily Smith, the Colorado State Patrol announced Wednesday morning.

Smith was killed while driving eastbound in the westbound lane on U.S. 50 just before 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, when her 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer collided with a 2007 Kenworth T800 semi truck. Smith was not wearing a seatbelt and died in the crash, troopers say.

The semi truck driver, Robert Mowles, 48, of Pueblo West, was wearing a seatbelt and was uninjured.

Troopers say they don't believe alcohol or drug use were factors in the crash.
