Tonight, while on the scene of an earlier accident, Wellington Fire Engine 1 was struck from behind by a vehicle going northbound on I-25. All firefighters are safe and were uninjured in the crash. Unfortunately, the driver of the vehicle did not survive their injuries.
Roads conditions will continue to deteriorate as the night goes on. We recommend staying home if you do not have to be anywhere tonight. If you must be on the roads, please use extra caution. We would also like to remind everyone to slow down and move over when you see an emergency vehicle on the side of the road with their lights on.
