Colorado State Patrol Investigating A Two Vehicle Accident

The Colorado State Patrol is investigating two vehicle crash that occurred on Colorado Highway 287 near milepost 112, approximately ½ mile east of Eads, CO.

A 1998 Infinity sedan was being driven by Juanita Hammer (39 yoa female from Eads, CO), and a 2009 Chevrolet Pickup was being driven by David Wancura (54 yoa male from Salida CO).  Hammer was travelling northbound and Wancura was travelling southbound on Colorado 287.  The two vehicles collided (side-to-side), which caused both vehicles to rotate.  Both vehicles came to rest on the highway, which caused Colorado 287 to be closed for approximately 2 hours.

Hammer was transported to Weisbrod Memorial Hospital in Eads.  Hammer was later transported to Prowers Medical Center.

Wancura was treated at Weisbrod Memorial Hospital and later released.

Alcohol and drugs are considered to be possible factors in the crash.  Investigation into the crash is on-going.
