Two die in Grand Mesa accident

Two pedestrians died in an accident at about 11:30 this morning, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

It happened when a 2003 Subaru Outback headed southbound on Colorado Highway 65 pulled into the right shoulder to let other southbound vehicles go by, according to State Patrol spokeswoman Heather Cobler.

The driver of the Outback then made a left turn from the right shoulder in front of a Ford Explorer, which was headed northbound. The turn caused the Explorer to lose control, swerving into a parking area at the County Line Winter Trailhead and striking the two pedestrians and a parked 2012 Buick Utility, Cobler said.

The pedestrians, whose identity have not yet been released, died on the scene. No one else was injured, and an investigation is ongoing.
