TELLURIDE, Colo. (AP) — Alcohol is suspected of contributing to a crash that killed three people in southwestern Colorado Saturday.
The Telluride Daily Planet (http://bit.ly/1k2lwMo ) 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 (http://bit.ly/1k2lwMo ) reports that LaForce, a native of Libertyville, Illinois, had just finished his first year as a teacher.
