Cause of Lyons Fatal Crash Still Unknown

Cause of Lyons Fatal Crash Still UnknownInvestigators are still trying to determine what caused a fatal rollover crash on U.S. 36 near Lyons on Monday evening. Officials do not believe speed, alcohol or drugs played a part in the single-vehicle accident.

Colorado State Patrol responded around 7:20 p.m. to reports of the accident near mile marker 15.5 on U.S. 36 near Lyons. A 51-year-old Lyons woman was driving west on U.S. 36 in a 1999 Ford pickup truck. Near mile marker 15.5, she veered off the right side of the road, overcorrected to the left, and swerved right one more before the truck rolled.

Boulder County coroner identified the driver as Julie Levernier, 51 of Lyons. Levernier was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected as the pickup rolled. Responders pronounced her dead at the scene.

Investigators are still looking into the cause of the crash. They have not been able to determine why the driver initially swerved and initiated the crash.

Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the victims of this horrible incident. If a family member would like the name of a person removed for any reason, please click the “Remove Post” link.
