Details on the Fatal Crash on US 6 at MM 229

Wednesday June 9, 2021

       On June 9th, 2021 at approximately 1824 hours, a white Dodge pickup was traveling east on US-6 when it drifted across the centerline at about mile post 229.  It struck a westbound semi truck that had attempted to avoid the collision by swerving onto the shoulder.  The pickup struck the semi on the driver side door area.  The driver of the pickup was deceased on scene.  The driver and co-driver of the semi were unharmed.  At almost the same time, Fire command requested that US-6 be closed due to a fire about a half mile west of the crash scene that was encroaching on the roadway.  Traffic was closed due to the fire.  Traffic in the area was cleared out.  It does not appear that smoke played any role in the crash as visibility was clear on the roadway.  Impairment is suspected as a contributing factor with the driver of the pickup.

The driver of the pickup has been identified as Scott L Stewart, 50, from Wheat Ridge, CO.
