Emergency management officials in Powell Co confirm that one person, a female, was killed in a crash on the Mountain Parkway Tuesday afternoon. Officials report that two lanes of the westbound Mountain Parkway at mile marker 16 where shut down while crews worked the fatal crash. Police said a passenger vehicle collided with a commercial vehicle. Preliminary reports suggest that an illegal u-turn may have led to this fatal crash. A flatbed truck carrying lumber tried to complete an illegal U-turn and the vehicle the woman was driving, drove underneath the truck, killing her. Two other people were transported to area Hospitals, but we have not received information on their injuries. The name of the deceased has not been released at this time. The Parkway was closed for about two hours. KSP said criminal charges could be pending.
