(COLORADO SPRINGS) — A driver involved in a fatal crash on East Las Vegas Street on Tuesday, Nov. 29, has been identified as 27-year-old Erica Pantoja of Colorado Springs by the El Paso County Coroner’s Office.

According to the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD), on Tuesday around 7:50 p.m. officers were called to a two-vehicle traffic crash in the 2200 block of East Las Vegas Street, near South Circle Drive.

CSPD said their investigation revealed a trash truck was headed south on Las Vegas Street and the car driven by Pantoja was heading north.
