1 dead, 1 hurt as speeding car crashes
Patrol estimates Subaru reached 100-plus mph


LOVELAND A speeding Subaru crashed into two cars and two trees, cutting the Subaru in half, killing the passenger and seriously injuring the driver Saturday.

The Colorado State Patrol has not released the name of either person in the Subaru pending notification of family.

About 10:45 p.m. Saturday, a state trooper was standing outside his car during a separate traffic stop when he saw a Subaru WRX speed by on U.S. Highway 287.

The trooper was near County Road 32, which is midway between Loveland and Fort Collins. The Subaru was headed north toward Fort Collins, traveling an estimated 100-plus mph.

The trooper began to follow the Subaru but could not safely catch up, reporting that the speeding car was about a quarter mile ahead, according to Master Trooper Ron Watkins.

However, the pursuing trooper was close enough to see the Subaru sideswipe a northbound sport utility vehicle at Harmony Road, on the south end of Fort Collins, Watkins said. The car then ran a red light at Troutman Parkway, where it hit another car broadside, he said.

From there, the Subaru spun off the road and crashed into two trees, which split the car in half, Watkins reported.

The driver of the Subaru was taken to Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins with serious injuries. His condition was not available Sunday because his name has not been released.

A male passenger in the car was killed, Watkins said. No one in either of the other two vehicles was injured.

Troopers continue to investigate. They believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.
