Passenger dies from injuries in rollover
A passenger involved in a tractor-trailer rollover accident Monday night died Tuesday from injuries suffered in the crash.
Michelle M. Barnett, 32, of Brazil, Ind., died at Denver Health Medical Center, where she was transported Tuesday morning after the accident.
Barnett was trapped in the truck for more than an hour Monday night before Steamboat Fire and Rescue workers freed her from the wreckage.
Barnett's husband, the semitrailer's driver Dennis Barnett, 34, died at the site of the crash.
The accident happened about 10:45 p.m. Monday near mile marker 142 on U.S. Highway 40. Dennis Barnett was traveling westbound on the west slop of Rabbit Ears Pass. He skidded and the semitrailer rolled onto its passenger side and then slid off the right side of the roadway and into the hillside.
