GRAND JUNCTION, COLO. -- Investigators say alcohol may have been a factor in a rollover accident that killed a woman 11 miles from the Colorado state line.
The Department of Public Safety says two women were traveling on I-70, heading toward Colorado around 9 a.m. Tuesday when their van drifted off the road.
The driver overcorrected. The van skidded off the other side of the road and rolled.
The driver, 67-year-old Vivian Cooper of Texas, died at the scene. Her passenger, 52-year-old Tamra Kindred, was flown to St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo. in critical condition.
