PUEBLO, Colo.– The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a one-vehicle accident
at Liberty Point in Pueblo West which left a juvenile passenger with serious but non-life
threatening injuries.

Two other passengers and the driver sustained minor injuries.

Deputies responded to the incident which took place near the Liberty Point Memorial around 5:30 a.m. today after receiving a report of a traffic accident.

When deputies arrived, they found the vehicle involved in the accident, but it was abandoned.

Later, they learned that a male juvenile passenger had been taken to a hospital with injuries who was then transported to a Colorado Springs hospital for treatment.

A preliminary investigation determined the driver of a 2014 Chevy Cruz was traveling southeast
on Liberty Point Boulevard at a high rate of speed when it rounded a curve and went off the left
side of the roadway and struck a large boulder.

The juvenile male driver and the two other passengers were later identified and questioned in
connection with the accident.

The investigation continues. Charges may be forthcoming.
