Three people died and one was seriously injured Sunday when a car rolled over and all four were ejected in the crash, south of Fountain on Interstate 25.
A 33-year-old man, a 30-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman, all from Pueblo, died in the crash, Colorado State Trooper Heather Cobler confirmed.
The driver, a 23-year-old woman from Pueblo, was taken to Memorial Central Hospital with serious injuries.
"We can't release the names of the people in the crash because we're still contacting next-of-kin," Cobler said. "The investigation is ongoing and it's going to take some time to piece together what was happening inside the vehicle at the time of the wreck."
According to a statement released by state patrol, the wreck happened shortly before 7 a.m. about 5 miles south of Fountain on southbound I-25, north of the Pikes Peak International Raceway.
A dark green Honda Accord ran off the left side of the road into the center median and struck a guardrail, continuing into the median and rolling one-and-a-half times until it came to a stop against a concrete drainage culvert.
The driver was ejected from the Honda when the car overturned, pinning her down and causing moderate to serious injuries, according to state patrol. The driver was not wearing a seat belt, Cobler said.
All three passengers, who were not wearing seat belts, were also ejected from the car during the crash and died as a result of their injuries, according to the state patrol.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation. Information on possible criminal charges was unavailable.
