LA JUNTA (March 5, 2018) – The Colorado State Patrol reported a fatal wrong-way collision around 1:12 PM on Monday afternoon, on Highway 50 one mile west of La Junta.
 
According to reports, a 1996 Chevrolet Tracker driven by 57-year-old Alma Lora of La Junta was traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of the highway, when she crashed head-on with a Chevrolet Malibu that was traveling westbound.
 
Lora was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, and suffered fatal injuries from the impact of the crash. Driver of the Malibu, 21-year-old Valerie Fausto of La Junta, was wearing a seatbelt and sustained minor injuries.
