Man dead after single-car crash in Rockrimmon


A man is dead following an overnight crash in the Rockrimmon area.

Police said the crash happened just after 10 p.m. near the intersection of Vindicator Drive and Owl Ridge Drive. Police said before the crash, an officer saw a car driving erratically in the area and tried to stop it, but the driver didn’t stop. 

The officer didn’t see the crash happen, but police believe speed was a factor. 

“We have a relatively large scene, from where the car first makes contact with the curb, it goes through a cyclone fence and continues to rotate,” CSPD Lt. Howard Black said.

Officers found one man dead inside the car. He has been identified as Ryan Clarke, 28. 

Investigators are looking for witnesses to the crash. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 719-444-7000.
