Aspen, CO Colorado

RIFLE, Colo. ” A Centennial Colorado man was identified as the victim in a one-vehicle accident on Interstate 70 near Rifle Wednesday night.

Daniel Wranik, 45, was pronounced dead at the scene after a Chevy Blazer driven by Antonio Hernandez, 27, of Lakewood, Colo., went into the median and rolled at about midnight.

Neither man was wearing a seatbelt and both were ejected from the vehicle, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

Hernandez was taken to the Grand River Medical Center in Rifle for treatment.

Garfield County Deputy Coroner Kristin Clifford said the men were believed to be staying in Rifle and worked for a carpet-laying company.

Alcohol is suspected as a factor in the crash, according to the state patrol, which was still investigating the crash on Thursday and had not yet decided whether to issue a citation to Hernandez.
