One person is dead after a five vehicle wreck on Horizon Boulevard, just North of Doy Road and the truck stops.
According to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded the accident early Thursday evening. The preliminary investigation determined that a Ford Work Truck was traveling southbound on Horizon Boulevard when – for unknown reasons – the driver veered onto the northbound lane of Horizon Boulevard.
