Alcohol and excessive speed are believed to be factors in a deadly crash Friday night in South Jeffco, according to the Colorado State Patrol.
Brady Kraft, 21, of Morrison and Steven Senter, 23, of Lakewood were killed about 10 p.m. Jan. 11 when the 2000 Lincoln Continental they were traveling in went out of control after hitting a raised concrete median just south of West Belleview Avenue while heading south on South Kipling Street. The car ran off the right side of the road, hit a signal light pole and burst into flames. Kraft was driving.
Both men were apparently not wearing seat belts.
According to the State Patrol, the investigation closed the intersection for several hours, but it reopened about 2 a.m.
