Fatal Crash at 12th Street and Belford Avenue #GVCopBeat

Patrol car at night with police tape

One person is deceased after a single vehicle crash at 12th Street and Belford Avenue.

Officers with the Grand Junction Police Department were dispatched to the area at 9:04pm and found a sedan that had collided with a utility pole after striking a parked car. One person had been ejected from the vehicle and was transported to the hospital by emergency medical personnel. That person’s condition is unknown at this time. A second person was found deceased inside the vehicle, requiring extrication by the Grand Junction Fire Department. The Mesa County Coroner’s Office will be responsible for releasing the identity of the deceased after appropriate notifications have been made.

Both directions of 12th Street, from North Avenue to Gunnison Avenue, are expected to be closed for several hours as the scene is processed and utility companies respond to inspect the utility poles and make sure they’re rendered safe.

Although the investigation into the circumstances of this crash is in the very early stages and will take time to complete, speed is being considered as a likely factor.
