Crash victim from Hotchkiss

Coroner identifies man killed Monday afternoon near Toponas as Todd Moore, 48


— The man killed in a head-on crash near Toponas on Monday afternoon has been identified as 48-year-old Todd Moore of Hotchkiss.

Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg said Moore's family has been notified. The cause of death has not yet been determined, but Ryg said it appeared Moore died of massive blunt force trauma.

Moore was wearing a seatbelt and was not ejected from the car, Ryg said. Moore was apparently driving a silver Honda coupe southbound on Colorado Highway 131 when he collided with a Ford minivan traveling the opposite direction. Colorado State Patrol troopers are investigating the cause of the crash.

Medical crews took the driver of the minivan to a hospital by ambulance, with moderate injuries.

There were no passengers in either car.
