At 2 am on Sunday, January 9, a Cadillac SUV was traveling on I-70, wrong way, Eastbound in the Westbound lanes.

The car was thrown off the right side of the interstate and two passengers were completely ejected. Both passengers were wearing seat belts but the violent impact pulled them out of their seat belts. One ejected subject, age 12 (CORRECTION), died on scene and the other, age 9, was flow to Primary Children’s Hospital in extremely critical condition. The driver, mother of the two children, was extremely intoxicated and suffered only minor injuries. She is in the custody of the UHP.
