Unrestrained infant in collision south of Johnstown dies
January 18, 2018
About a week after being taken to a hospital from a two-vehicle collision, an infant involved in the crash has died, Weld County Coroner Carl Blesch confirmed Thursday afternoon.
Blesch said he cannot yet name the infant, who was involved in a collision just after 5 p.m. Jan. 11 near Weld County roads 17 and 38, about two miles south of Johnstown.
According to Colorado State Patrol spokesman Trooper Gary Cutler, Loveland resident Bryan Vasquez, 19, was driving on Weld 38 when he ran a stop sign. A northbound vehicle driven by Woodrow resident Arinda Shaw, 30, continued through the intersection, T-boning Vasquez's car, Cutler said.
Cutler said the infant was not restrained at the time of collision. An unidentified 19-year-old female passenger received serious injuries, and both she and the infant were taken to a nearby hospital. The infant eventually was taken to Children's Hospital in Broomfield, Cutler said.
Shaw received minor injuries in the collision.
