One person died after a traffic crash Wednesday afternoon in the area of Kodak Drive and Colo. 257 in Windsor.
According to a news release issued Friday from the Weld County Corner's office, the woman was Carol McCarthy, 68, of Berthoud.
A release from the Windsor Police Department stated the crash happened about 3:25 p.m. when McCarthy, who was stopped at a crosswalk for a bicyclist, was struck from behind by another northbound vehicle. The impact forced McCarthy's car into the opposite, southband lane, where her vehicle was hit by another car before, rolling into a ditch on the west side of the highway.
She was taken to the Medical Center of the Rockies, where she died just before 9:15 p.m., according to the release from the coroner's office.
The crash remains under investigation, and no decision about any potential charges has been made. No other information was immediately released.
McCarthy is the 49th person to die so far this year in Weld County. Through this date last year 58 people had died.
