Collision kills one, temporarily closes College-Trilby intersection

A two-car collision at the intersection of College Avenue and Trilby Road resulting in the death of one of the drivers occurred Wednesday.

Just before 1 p.m., Fort Collins Police Services responded to the accident between a 1993 Pontiac sedan and a 1988 Ford truck at the intersection, according to a press release from FCPS.

According to the release, an 86-year-old woman was attempting to make a left turn at the intersection when she collided with a 37-year-old male driving in the opposite direction. The man, later identified as Antonio Barrientos III, sustained minor injuries.

The woman received much more severe injuries and was transported to the Medical Center of the Rockies. She was pronounced dead at the hospital. Her identity will be released by the Larimer County Coroner after the family has been notified.

Preliminary reports say the speed of the vehicle, drugs or alcohol are not believed to be factors of the collision, according to FCPS. 

The FCPS Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling Team investigated and closed surrounding roadways for approximately three and a half hours. Traffic has resumed since then.

FCPD asks that anyone with additional information, who has not already spoken to police, should contact Officer Drew Jurkofsky at 970-416-2224.
