Joseph Urbanowicz, 31, was identified as the man killed in Sunday’s crash on Cimarron Street beneath Interstate 25.
Urbanowicz ran a red light in a Chevrolet Silverado pickup while driving west on Cimarron, police said.
He hit a Dodge Ram pickup heading onto the north I-25 on-ramp.
The Dodge’s driver and passenger were brought to a hospital, police said. Their conditions were not immediately known.
During the collision, a small dog named Koa was thrown from the Dodge and ran away.
This is the 26th traffic fatality in Colorado Springs this year.
