Single-vehicle collision kills one man

A man was killed in a fatal rollover crash early Wednesday morning. 

According to a press release from Fort Collins Police Services, the driver lost control of the a white 2008 Volkswagen hatchback after swerving to avoid a center median in the 2000 block of Timberline Road. The vehicle exited the west side of the road, struck a fence and tree and rolled over.


The man believed to be the driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. Larimer County Coroner will release his identity at a later time.

Passenger Jobani Mungia, 21, was cleared by medical personnel at the scene. Jesus Alejandro Morales Gutierrez, 18, suffered injuries and was transported to Medical Center of the Rockies. He has been now released.

Fort Collins Police were notified of the single-vehicle collision at 12:03 a.m. The Fort Collins Police CRASH Team closed Southbound Timberline Road at Caribou Drive for approximately 7 hours in order to investigate the incident, using a drone to map out the scene. They now believe speed and alcohol may have contributed to the crash, according to the press release.
