State patrol seeking witnesses in fatal crash west of Denver

The Colorado State Patrol is looking for witnesses in a fatal crash early this morning.

Troopers said the crash happened around 4:45 a.m. on westbound Interstate 70 just east of mile marker 256, which is near the intersection with Colorado 470. A black 2006 Lexus LX470 SUV was headed westbound when it veered off the right side of the road and crashed. The driver, a 59-year-old man from Littleton, was killed in the crash.

One witness reported the Lexus was moving at a high rate of speed when it went off the road.

Anyone who saw the crash, or saw a black full-size Lexus SUV in the area before the crash, is asked to call Trooper Ziadeh at 303-239-4501 and reference case number 1A151328.
