Man killed in crash with dump truck

The Colorado State Patrol is investigating a fatal two-vehicle accident Tuesday south of Montrose involving a Montrose County-owned dump truck.

Blaine Tankersley, 26, of Montrose, was driving south on U.S. Highway 550 in a Ford F250 pickup truck when he crashed into the rear of a Montrose County dump truck, which had slowed to turn left on Racine Road, Trooper Nate Reid said. The crash was reported at 7:52 a.m.

The dump truck driver, Jack Veete, 46, of Delta, was treated and released with minor injuries.

It’s unknown if alcohol or drugs were a factor, Reid said.

The crash remains under investigation and no citations had been issued Tuesday.
