DURANGO, CO (April 21, 2018)– Early Saturday morning, a Durango man was fatally struck by a vehicle on Highway 160 near the intersection with County Road 225A.
The man was identified as 43-year-old Mark Deuel, according to Capt Adrian Driscoll of the Colorado State Patrol.

The vehicle was driven by 47-year-old Dana Clark of Pagosa Springs. Clark’s vehicle ran off the road after the impact.
