Icy roads blamed for crash that killed northern Colorado teen

KREMMLING, Colo. — The Colorado State Patrol says icy roads are to blame for a crash that killed a northern Colorado teen Tuesday night.

Troopers said the crash happened around 10 p.m. on Highway 40 near mile marker 160, which is between Kremmling and Steamboat Springs in Grand County. A 1996 Ford pickup was headed westbound on the highway when the driver lost control on the icy roads. The truck went off the road and down an embankment, rolling multiple times.

The driver, a 16-year-old boy from Kremmling, died in the crash. Troopers said he was wearing his seatbelt.

Troopers said alcohol and drugs are not considered factors in the crash.
