SALIDA, Colo. – Two people are dead after a five-vehicle crash in Colorado.

The Colorado State Patrol says the driver of a recreational vehicle was westbound on U.S. 50 along Monarch Pass on Sunday when he crossed the center line, swerved to the right and sideswiped a Lincoln Town Car.

The Lincoln sideswiped a Toyota Camry, sending both vehicles off the road. The RV then hit an eastbound Nissan Altima head on before rolling on its side.

Troopers say the RV driver, 79-year-old Ray Stout of Montrose, Colo., and the Nissan driver, 68-year-old Miguel Solis of El Paso, Texas, died at the scene. Solis’ passenger, Felipa Solis, was airlifted to a Grand Junction, Colo., hospital with serious injuries.

Debris from the crash struck a fifth vehicle. Its driver was unhurt.
