GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The Mesa County Coroner's Office is releasing the names of those killed in a weekend crash on Interstate 70.
Officials say Linda Woodward, 73, of La Jara and Billy Steele, 33, of Meeker died on Sunday afternoon following the two-vehicle accident near the Horizon Drive exit.
Woodward was the driver of a Ford truck; Steele was driving a Chevy truck.
One of the trucks drifted over the median just before 4:30 p.m. and caused a head-on collision.
Woodward's vehicle caught fire, while Steele's truck was sent off the road into a ditch south of the interstate.
Mesa County Coroner Dean Havlik said Woodward and Steele were wearing seat belts, but they both died from multiple blunt force injuries.
A third person was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.
