A married couple traveling to pick up their children from their grandmother’s house ran off the road and into a ditch near midnight on Saturday, says a report from KJCT News 8 in Grand Junction. The motor vehicle accident involving a 1999 Jeep Cherokee killed the wife and injured the husband.
The story says the wife was driving and not wearing her seatbelt. It’s possible that excessive speed and alcohol may have been contributing factors to the deadly accident. The husband said that they were lost and did not see the dead-end road in time to stop.
