At 12:56 p.m. on January 30, 2019, Fort Collins Police responded to the report of a two-car collision at the intersection of College Avenue and Trilby Road.

Through the course of their investigation, officers determined that an 86-year-old female driving a 1993 Pontiac sedan was traveling southbound on College Avenue and attempted to make a left turn onto eastbound Trilby Road. She crossed in front of a 1988 Ford truck driven by Antonio Barrientos III, 37, who was traveling northbound on College Avenue. Barrientos sustained minor injuries. The female sustained serious injuries and was transported to Medical Center of the Rockies where she was pronounced deceased. The Larimer County Coroner will release the woman’s identity at a later time. Speed, drugs, or alcohol are not believed to be factors in the collision.

Members of the Fort Collins Police Services CRASH (Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling) Team responded to investigate. The intersection and surrounding roadways were closed for approximately three and a half hours while officers processed the scene.

Anyone with additional information, who has not spoken to police, should contact Officer Drew Jurkofsky at 970-416-2224.
