When you think of grapevine, you probably think of cars and cars driving in clusters on the road.
However, it’s not uncommon for traffic accidents to happen on the roadway.
And that’s exactly what happened in the case of this driver who suffered a fatal traffic accident on Interstate 5 near Grapevine, Colorado, on Monday.
According to ABC affiliate KUSA, the Grapevine Police Department was called to the area after the driver of a Honda Accord struck another vehicle on Interstate Highway 5, which is a state highway.
The accident occurred near the intersection of Highway 65 and Highway 65A in Grapevine.
The driver of the Honda Accord was killed, but the car and its occupants survived.
The driver of that car, Robert T. Smith, was later pronounced dead at the scene.
The Grapevine police department released a statement Monday saying, “This individual was wearing a helmet, wearing his seatbelt, and was using a pedestrian signal that was posted.
It appears that the pedestrian signal was not working properly.”
The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was not following a pedestrian.
The Grapevine Department of Transportation said that the driver was cited for not wearing his helmet.
According the police statement, the driver “was driving westbound on I-5 when he struck the vehicle that was travelling in a northbound lane.”
Grapevine Police Chief Robert C. Karras said, “We don’t want to give the driver too much credit.
It was a pretty horrific crash.
It’s a real tragedy.”
The Grapeville Police Department has been investigating the incident.
Police say they are looking into a number of possible road safety violations, including failure to wear a seat belt.
