Passenger dies at hospital following two-vehicle crash at McDonald’s light

An officer looks over a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon at the light by McDonald's at the Roaring Fork Marketplace.

An 88-year-old male passenger died from injuries suffered in a Wednesday afternoon two-vehicle crash near McDonald’s on Highway 82 in Glenwood Springs, according to the Glenwood Police Chief Terry Wilson.

The Glenwood Springs Police Department is currently investigating the cause of the accident that occurred around 2:30 p.m. and sent two people to Valley View Hospital. Chief Wilson said that it appears to be a fail-to-yield situation where an SUV turned left in front of a trash dumpster roll-off truck at the intersection.

The name of the man who died in the crash was not immediately released. The other occupant was also taken to the hospital, according to reports.
