Richard Orville Haggart - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 1, 1962 - Pueblo Man Killed by Train Here - Richard Orville Haggart, 30, of Pueblo, was killed instantly at 7:55 a.m. today when a Ft. Carson switch engine pulling nine freight cars hit him as he was working on a construction project near the Kelker crossing east of Ft. Carson. The victim, and employee of the Smith - Miller Construction Company, Pleasanton, Kans., was welding joints on the track when the accident happened, according to Sheriff's Detective Franklin Ripley. Haggart apparently didn't hear the approaching train because of the noise and vibration of the welding machine. Ripley said the driver of the locomotive did not see Haggart as he pulled around the curve near the crossing. Another worker with Haggart, William Miller, 20, of Manitou Springs, heard the engine and jumped clear. Investigating officers at the accident scene included Ripley, Deputy Sheriff Bernard Berry, Colorado Highway Patrolmen Kent Moline and John Anderschan, and military police from Ft. Carson, and Dr. Raoul Urich, coroner. Haggart's body was taken to the Swan Funeral Home. Hague, A. I.

Michael Hahn - The Pueblo Chieftain - December 21 2001 - 2 men killed in head-on collision near Las Animas - LAS ANIMAS - Two men died and their passengers were injured, one critically, in a head-on collision east of Las Animas on Wednesday night. Killed in the crash were Steven Campos, 30, of Las Animas, and Michael Hahn, 53, of Springfield. Campos' wife Jennifer, 22, and Hahn's wife Linda, 54, both suffered serious injuries and were taken to St. Anthony Hospital in Denver after being treated at a La Junta hospital. Linda Hahn was in the intensive care unit Thursday with multiple traumas, and was listed in critical condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Jennifer Campos was listed in fair condition with multiple injuries. The Colorado State Patrol reported receiving a call about 8:30 p.m. from a citizen who said Campos was driving slowly and weaving. Trooper Douglas Bremer spotted Campos' Ford Taurus about 20 minutes after that call, on U.S. 50 near Rocky Ford. He attempted to stop the car, but the driver took off at high speeds and a pursuit began. Bremer stopped the chase near the La Junta city limits, but Campos continued driving at a high speed through La Junta and on toward Las Animas, veering into traffic and running other drivers off the road, according to the report. About 7 1/2 miles east of Las Animas, Campos swerved into the westbound lane and collided head-on with a Plymouth van driven by Michael Hahn, the patrol said. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers estimated Campos' speed at 100 mph; while Hahn was estimated to be going about 40 mph when the crash occurred about 9:30 p.m. Patrol spokesman Richard Breece said the initial sighting of the vehicle is being investigated as a domestic violence incident in progress in the Campos car. The patrol has not determined whether alcohol was involved in the crash. Hahn, Robert F.
