A 58-year-old man was killed Thursday after hitting a concrete retaining wall at an RV park in the Cimarron Hills area, the Colorado State Patrol said.

The man, whose name has not been released, was speeding on a private road at the Wrangler RV Park, 6225 E. Platte Ave., in a 1993 Ford Ranger when he hit the wall. He was not wearing a seat belt, the State Patrol said.

He may have had a medical issue before the crash, the State Patrol said.
