COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Three people were killed in a three-car rollover crash in eastern Colorado Springs Sunday afternoon, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The crash happened around 3 p.m. at the intersection of Marksheffel Road and Space Village Avenue.

Troopers said a Honda CRV ran a stop sign and was T-boned by a Ford F-150. Those two cars then crashed into oncoming traffic and were hit by a Jeep Cherokee.

Troopers said all three people in the CRV died in the crash. Their names have not yet been released.

Two people in the Jeep were taken to the hospital, and the man in the truck took himself to the hospital with minor injuries.

Troopers have not yet determined the cause of the crash. They said speed, alcohol use, and drug use do not appear to be factors.

“This was an extremely violent collision at high speeds and it would have been very difficult for anyone to survive,” Colorado State Patrol Sgt. Jason Jones said. “If we had someone that was driving safely, operating the vehicle in a safe manner, we wouldn’t have lost three people.”

State patrol is asking anyone who saw the crash to call Trooper Joshua Yoder at 719-544-2424.
