One person was killed and two others seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash Friday on Highway 82 near Holland Hills, authorities said.

The name of the deceased and the injured parties were not immediately available, said Undersheriff Ron Ryan.

Terry Cox, a division chief with Roaring Fork Fire Rescue, said there was one fatality in “what appeared to be a T-bone accident.” There were three people total involved in the accident. One person was taken in critical condition to Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs. Another patient was taken in urgent condition to Aspen Valley Hospital, then airlifted to Valley View, according to Cox.

Photos submitted from the scene show a T-bone crash, with one SUV resting in the eastbound lanes and the driver’s side smashed in and the other vehicle stopped in the downvalley lanes with its frontend smashed. Airbags were deployed in the SUV.

This is a developing story that will be updated.
