A 51-year-old Greeley man and a 21-year-old Eaton woman died Saturday night after a head-on collision at U.S. 85 and Weld County Road 70 near Lucerne. Their names have not been released until family can be notified.


According to the Greeley Tribune, the man was driving southbound in the northbound lanes of U.S. 85 and collided with the woman at about 9:25 p.m. Saturday.


Neither car had passengers. The Colorado State Patrol says alcohol may have been a factor in the crash after they found a bottle of Vodka in the truck.
