Colorado State Patrol is investigating a single vehicle crash that resulted in the fatality of a child riding a sled Friday in Park County.
Jaramillo Herrera of Forney, Texas, was driving a 2018 Ford F-250 pickup eastbound on Park County Road 60 Friday.
Herrera was also towing four children on the snowpacked, icy roadway. The four sleds were affixed to the rear of the Ford by tow straps.
According to a press release, Herrera brought the truck to a stop when one of the children came off their sled.
An 11-year old girl was unable to stop when the truck did. She slid into the rear of the Ford, struck the undercarriage and slid underneath the truck.
The 11-year old suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead a short time later.
No other injuries were reported.
At this time alcohol and drug use are not suspected to be contributing factors in the crash, which remains under investigation.
