Fort Collins Man Killed In Rollver Accident

Comments Off

A Fort Collins man, 20, was killed in a single-vehicle rollover accident on early Friday when he was thrown from his vehicle, according to authorities.

The accident happened just after 1:00 a.m. in the 2600 block of Prospect Road, authorities say.

He was driving eastbound in his 1995 Infiniti on Prospect when his vehicle struck the median and traveled along the median for several yard before striking a light pole, said police officer Scott Crumbaker.

Police believe he was intoxicated at the time of the crash.

Maxwell Dinkel, formerly of Aurora, was working part time and was enrolled in college courses in anticipation of going to Colorado State University full time, his uncle Gary said.

"He was getting his life together," Malpiede said. "That’s what makes it doubly sad."
