Two women were sent Flight for Life following a two vehicle head-on crash on Highway 96 approximately three miles east of Boone on Monday at 6:55 a.m.

Both drivers, Bobbi Roe, 36, Sugar City, and Mercedes Zamora, 24, no town listed, received serious injuries in the early morning wreck.

A 2007 Ford Fusion driven by Roe was heading west and passing another vehicle when the Ford collided with an eastbound 2016 Jeep Renegade driven by Zamora.

Following impact, the Fusion rotated clockwise coming to rest on its wheels facing north in the eastbound lane.

The impact of the crash pushed the Jeep off the north side of Highway 96 and it came to rest facing south where it caught fire.

Roe, the Fusion's driver, was unrestrained and was flown to Parkview Medical Center in Pueblo with serious injuries.

Zamora, who was driving the Jeep, was restrained and was transported to Penrose Hospital in Colorado Springs with serious injuries.

At this time, according to the Colorado State Patrol, alcohol and drug use are not suspected. Improper passing is the primary contributing factor to the crash.
