Three people transported to NCMC after two-car crash

Three people were transported to North Colorado Medical Center after they were involved in a two-car crash on Friday at U.S. 34 and Weld County Road 17.

According to Sgt. Susan West, public information officer for the Greeley Police Department, Zachary May, 27, of Greeley, was a driver in one vehicle, and Vidal Segura-Iraheta, 40, of Evans, and Jose Contreras Rodriguez, 57, of Greeley, were in the other vehicle. All three were transported to NCMC in Greeley. West said none of the injuries were life threatening.

West said the vehicle driven by May was driving eastbound on U.S. 34 approaching Weld 17 at about noon, while the second vehicle was turning south onto Weld 17 from westbound U.S. 34.

“The driver and the passenger in the turning vehicle was broad-sided, and it rolled onto its driver’s side and pushed up against a utility on the southeast corner of the intersection,” West said.

West said Rodriguez suffered the most serious injuries.

West said one victim had to be extricated, and was pinned inside for almost 45 minutes while Windsor-Severance firefighters removed the top of the vehicle.

West said the crash is still under investigation, and charges are pending. She didn’t know if any of the three were wearing seatbelts.
