The Colorado State Patrol says the Freightliner semi truck was heading northbound on Highway 71 near Last Chance when the driver lost control.

It happened around 8:15 a.m.

The driver, 36-year-old William Gregory of Bridgeport, Neb., was not wearing a seatbelt, according to troopers. He was pronounced dead on the scene by the Washington County coroner.

The passenger, 30-year-old Barrett Hornberger, also of Bridgeport, was also not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident is still under investigation and troopers say they believe speed was a factor in the crash.
