Two people are dead after their car hit a semitractor-trailer Tuesday evening on Colo. 115 north of Penrose.
Jaysen Thomas, 28, of Salida and Leonna Winter, 38, of Cotopaxi were both reported dead on the scene after their 1994 Saturn sedan collided with the semi. Thomas was driving.
The car was headed southbound on Colo. 115 just before 7 p.m. Tuesday when it suddenly veered into the northbound lane at about milemarker 29, and into the path of the northbound fully-loaded semi.
Colorado State Patrol reported the driver of the semi, Stewart Devongh, 47, of Fountain, was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
The incident remains under investigation.
