Ivan Alejandro Luera-Gurerro Death – Ivan Alejandro Luera-Gurerro, 27 years old, was identified as the victim of an accident that took place on U.S. Highway 550 just south of Colona on Wednesday night. The collision occurred just south of Colona. According to the Ouray County Coroner Glenn Boyd, Luera-Gurerro was brought from the scene of the incident to Montrose Regional Health, where she was later pronounced dead after being treated for her injuries. According to Boyd, Luera-Gurerro was currently residing in Montrose, but he is originally from Zacatecas, Mexico.
Autopsy was conducted
An autopsy is going to be performed as part of the investigation, and the results of that will identify the circumstances surrounding his passing. According to Trooper Taylor Blanscet of the Colorado State Patrol, the collision took place shortly after 5:30 p.m. close to the Centennial Ranch around the mile marker 114. Luera-Gurerro had been trying to operate a GMC Yukon that was traveling north on the highway when he tried to pass several vehicles in a no-passing zone. Luera-Gurerro then swerved to avoid colliding with a Ford F-150 that was approaching from the opposite direction, which led to an accident involving four vehicles, according to Blanscet.
The Ford F-150 struck the Yukon, pushing it into a northbound GMC Sierra that was hauling a trailer. Although Blanscet stated that investigators are unsure as to whose car struck the Honda Ridgeline, it was a northbound Honda Ridgeline that was traveling behind the GMC Sierra that was unable to halt in time and was struck. A man in his 49th year who was a passenger in the GMC Yukon suffered from non-life threatening injuries but was not transported to the hospital. Four people in the GMC Sierra two 42-year-old men, a 41-year-old man and a 20-year-old man, all from the Grand Junction area were not injured. A 43-year-old Montrose woman who was the driver of the Honda Ridgeline also was not injured, according to Blanscet.
All of the people involved in the accident were wearing seat belts. According to Blanscet, “This is a very complex investigation,” “The main accident investigators are still trying to piece together what happened.” According to him, investigators believe the principal causes of the accident were the driver’s attempt to pass in a zone where it was prohibited to do so and driving at a speed that was excessive for the road conditions. There is no evidence to suggest that drinking or drugs were involved. Because of the accident, Highway 550 was blocked in both directions until approximately 10 p.m.
