Newly Released Video Shows Terrifying Moments Leading to Fiery I-70 Crash

Denver, CO — A newly released video shows the terrifying moments leading up to the fiery 2019 crash along Interstate 70 which claimed the lives of four people and injured six others.

Transportation Nation Network (TNN) obtained new video released by First Judicial District Attorney Alexis King in the high-profile case against trucker Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos.




 

The video was captured by a Colorado State Patrol (CSP) troopers’s dash camera and shows Aguilera-Mederos’s big big rig, loaded with lumber, zooming by at approximately 85 mph just moments before crashing into standstill traffic.

Only seconds after the tractor-trailer passes the CSP trooper, a heavy plume of black smoke is seen rising from the crash site.

WATCH it below.



Following Colorado Governor Jared Polis’s controversial decision to grant Aguilera-Mederos clemency — slashing his prison sentence from 110 to 10 years — King’s office released a trove of new evidence in the case.

TNN has obtained each piece and is continuing to review them.




 

In a TNN exclusive just published this week, James Colgan, Aguilera-Mederos’s attorney, sat down to discuss a number of aspects of the case truckers have been asking about for months.
