Suspected DUI driver causes fiery crash involving state trooper, tow truck



MONUMENT, Colo. (KKTV) - A driver is facing DUI charges after careening into a State Patrol motorcycle and a tow truck early Wednesday morning.


According to State Patrol, the trooper and the tow operator were wrapping up at the scene of an earlier crash on I-25 just south of Baptist Road when the pickup came barreling towards them. The pickup smashed into both vehicles, causing the motorcycle to catch fire and damaging the tow enough that a second tow truck was required to haul it from the scene.


State Patrol says the trooper and tow truck driver were both standing away from the vehicles and were uninjured in the crash. The passenger in the pickup suffered serious injuries but is expected to recover. The person involved in the initial crash sustained minor injuries.


A trooper who was assisting with the investigation into the DUI crash suffered a mishap at the scene and was taken to the hospital for their own injury. State Patrol didn’t have any further details, other than it was nothing life-threatening.


The driver who caused the crash was taken to the hospital for evaluation before being taken into custody.
