One woman died and three were injured in a collision with a semi-truck on I-70 near Glenwood Canyon, according to CBS Denver. The car apparently crossed the center line and hit the semi head-on. The driver was killed, and the three passengers, a man, a woman, and a child, were transported to Vail Valley Medical Center. The child then had to be flown to a hospital in Denver for further treatment. Both the car and the truck caught fire, and the highway had to be closed while the accident was cleaned up. In addition to the other damage, about 100 gallons of fuel that leaked onto the roadway from the truck had to be cleaned up.

Each year, there are over 5 million car accidents across the United States. In most of these crashes, there is only property damage, and no one is injured. Unfortunately, there are over a million accidents annually in which people are hurt, and over 30,000 fatal collisions. A significant number of these crashes are the result of at least one driver not paying attention to the road. Especially when driving in an area, like on switchback roads in the mountains, where it is only possible to see a certain distance down the road, it is vital to be focused on the task at hand at all times while driving.
