7 dead, multiple people injured in 6 separate Front Range crashes over weekend

Seven people were killed and multiple people injured in six separate crashes in the Denver area and along the Front Range over the weekend.

Two Castle Rock teens, both 17 years old, were killed in a crash caused by a suspected drunk driver late Friday night. Two other 17-year-old victims were hospitalized for moderate to serious injuries.

The victims were identified as Colton Bellamy and Audrey Todd and were Castle View High School students. The school said they’ll have a crisis team on site Monday and Tuesday to talk to students.

“There’s simply no excuse for it,” said CSP Trooper Josh Lewis. “And unfortunately, it far too often results in tragedy, whether it’s for the individual that makes that decision or unfortunately, as seems to be the case here, other people that pay the price for a very, very poor decision.”
