Anthony Abachiche, 25, of Delta was killed in an auto accident Tuesday, Sept. 11, at about 2:30 p.m.
The Colorado State Petrol reports that Abachiche was traveling eastbound on Highway 50 at mile marker 54 near the Delta-Mesa county line.
The weather was rainy and windy at the time. Abachiche lost control of his Volkswagen Passat on the wet roadway and went into the depressed median. He re-entered the highway in the westbound lanes and as his car was skidding broadside, the driver's side was hit by a westbound Dodge pickup driven by Mitchel Dietrich, 25, of Grand Junction.
Abachiche died at the scene. Dietrich received minor injuries. He was not transported to a hospital.blog comments powered by Disqus
