DENVER, CO (March 3, 2018) – Around midnight on Saturday evening, a fatal accident involving a pickup truck and a semi-truck occurred in the eastbound lanes of the 70 Freeway, near Interstate 25.
 
According to the Denver Police Department, the semi was headed east on I-70, when a pickup merged onto the highway and crashed into it. At least one of the vehicles hit a barrier, and the semi-truck caught on fire, killing the driver.
