TELLURIDE, Colo. (AP) — Alcohol is suspected of contributing to a crash that killed three people in southwestern Colorado Saturday.

The Telluride Daily Planet ( ) reports that they were on their way to a campsite after celebrating July 4th in Telluride when their Chevrolet Cruze went off Colorado Highway 145. It rolled several times down a steep embankment covered with loose rock.

The only survivor was Weston Gleiss, a math teacher from Eagle Valley High School in Gypsum, who crawled out of the wreckage and flagged down a deputy.

Another Eagle Valley teacher, 26-year-old Garrett LaForce, along with 23-year-old Edward Bollman and 21-year-old Carly Sansone, who both have ties to Michigan, died in the crash.

The Vail Daily ( ) reports that LaForce, a native of Libertyville, Illinois, had just finished his first year as a teacher.
