One killed in northeastern Colorado Springs crash


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — One person was killed in a single-car crash on Templeton Gap Road in northeastern Colorado Springs Friday morning.

The crash happened just before 6 a.m. in the area of Templeton Gap Road and Corinth Drive, which is in the neighborhood northwest of Powers and Stetson Hills boulevards. Police said a Chevy Malibu was headed eastbound when it hit a curb, went across the road, and crashed into a tree on the north side.

The driver, 34-year-old James Cleghorn of Colorado Springs, died on the scene.

Police are still investigating whether or not speed or alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Police said Cleghorn’s death is the first traffic-related death in Colorado Springs in 2020.

A portion of Templeton Gap was closed while police investigated the crash. It has now reopened.
