All four people died at the scene of massive injuries. According to the Colorado State Patrol, weather conditions at the time, which included rain-slicked roads and fog contributed to the accident.

Sauers, Peter
Peter Sauers - Durango Democrat - July 18, 1902 – Fatal Stabbing Affray At Gardner - By Associated Press - Walsenburg, July 17, 1902 -- A stabbing affray occurred at Gardner, about 18 miles northwest of Walsenburg, Saturday, July 12, word of which has just reached here through which Peter Sauers, an old time resident of that place, received sixteen wounds which resulted in his death. The trouble came about some water rights between Sauers and R. J. Caldwell, another old-timer of Gardner. Sauers previous to this, it is said, threatened to kill Caldwell on sight, and the threat was reported to Caldwell by several parties. On Saturday, Caldwell was sitting by an old adobe building in Gardner whittling with his pocket knife. Sauers passed by and the first thing the bystanders knew Sauers had Caldwell by the whiskers. Before the people could interfere, Caldwell had cut Sauers in 16 places, in the abdomen, at the throat and through the back into the lungs. When separated by the bystanders Sauers murmured something indistinctly and started for his team, which was tied on the opposite side of the road, but fell before he reached it. Caldwell also had a gun on him but did not use it. Caldwell sent down word to Sheriff Farr that he was ready to give himself up. Sauers was arrested not long ago on a charge of misappropriating water and brought to Walsenburg, where he had his trial and was fined $100 and costs.

About the time that he might be supposed to have reached the spot where the bones were found, a heavy snow storm set in. Savage has never been heard of since, and there is every reason for believing that he perished in the storm.
