Car crash kills two, injures two in Fort Collins

Two people were killed and two people were injured in a car crash on Sunday afternoon at the intersection of Harmony Road and Hinsdale Drive in Fort Collins.

Fort Collins Police Services were notified at around 11:40 AM of a collision.


A 2001 Chevrolet Truck, headed East on Harmony Road, was struck head-on by a 2005 Pontiac Vibe sedan. The sedan was driving west on Harmony Road when it crossed over the center turn lane.

The sedan was occupied by a driver and two young children. The driver of the sedan died at the scene of the crash. Both children were transported to the Medical Center of the Rockies after sustaining serious injuries. One of the children died at the hospital.

The man in the Chevrolet, Brian Sauer, 42, of Fort Collins, sustained moderate injuries at the scene. He was later transported to Poudre Valley Hospital for treatment.

The investigation is currently ongoing. Whether or not drugs or alcohol were a factor in the accident is currently unknown. The names of the deceased will be released by the Larimer County Coroner’s Office pending notification of family.
