2 Mesa County Men Dead From Crash On River Road
According to the Mesa County Coroner, they have identified two men who were killed in a crash on River Road Wednesday morning.
KKCO reports that the accident occurred at approximately 8:15 a.m. in the area of Kedrowski Court, near 21 Road.
The victims were identified as Donavon Otero, 35, and Ted Otero, 66.
Blunt force head trauma was the cause of the deaths. The Colorado State Patrol reports that the driver lost control of the vehicle and it slid into a utility pole, which caused the roof of the vehicle to be crushed in.
Neither one of the men were wearing seat belts. Colorado State Patrol says that due to heavy fog that morning it may have been a cause of the accident, but they are not sure that it was the cause of the accident.
