GSHS student killed in I-70 rollover

Services will be held today and tomorrow for Evan Carrington, a Glenwood Springs High School student who was killed in a car accident Monday night.

Carrington, 18, was a three-year GSHS mock trial participant and a key member of the 2015 state championship team.

He was the only person in his Ford Ranger when he lost control on westbound Interstate 70 near Gypsum, went off into the median and rolled, according to the Colorado State Patrol. He was wearing his seat belt, and alcohol or other drugs are not suspected of contributing to the crash, trooper Josh Lewis added.

Visitation and rosary services begin at 6 p.m. Thursday at St. Stephens Catholic Church, with all welcome to come and share a story or thought. Catholic services take place Friday at 3 p.m. at St. Stephens followed by burial at Rosebud Cemetery and a potluck celebration at Glenwood Springs High School.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made in Carrington’s name, which will be used to assist the family’s expenses and a mock trial scholarship fund.

Contributions can be made through Alpine Bank For Benefit of Evan Carrington, or through Venmo@EvancarringtonFund.
