Lopez, Leroy
Leroy Lopez - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - July 2, 1980 - Pueblo Truck Driver Killed, Rider Injured in I-25 Crash - A 20-year-old Pueblo man was killed and another man injured in a fiery one-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 25, about five miles south of Fountain, the Colorado State Patrol said. The patrol identified the dead man as Leroy Lopez. Injured was Jeff Zupancic, 21, of Pueblo, who suffered second degree burns on his arms and legs, the patrol said. Zupancic was a passenger in a truck driven by Lopez. Patrolman J.J. Babcock said the truck was traveling south on I-25 when Lopez apparently fell asleep at the wheel. The truck veered onto the road shoulder, came back onto the pavement, and skidded 118 feet before rolling onto its left side, Babcock said. The truck then traveled another 220 feet and burst into flames in the southbound traffic land. Zupancic escaped from the vehicle by crawling out a window, Babcock said, but Lopez was trapped in the burning truck. Deputy coroner Clarence West pronounced him dead at 12:05 p.m. and an autopsy is scheduled to determine the exact cause of death. Babcock said a gas filter cap apparently broke during the crash, spilling gas and fueling the fire. He said several witnesses to the crash attempted to reach Lopez but couldn't approach the truck because of the flames. The Fountain Fire Department extinguished the blaze and Zupancic was transported to Penrose Hospital by a Fort Carson MAST helicopter.
