A crash has closed Grand Ave from 12th St to 14th St. Also, 13th St from Grand to White is closed. These closures will likely remain in place for several hours while we investigate. Please avoid this area until we are able to reopen the roads.
At this point in the investigation we believe a male driver was heading east on Grand Ave., came through the intersection at 12th St, hit a car that was stopped at that intersection, then continued east until he hit a street light and tree at the corner of Grand Ave. and 13th St. The male driver is deceased on scene.
The Mesa County Coroner’s Office will take possession of the man’s body to determine the cause and manner of his death.
