I say it on the air all the time: reporting fatal traffic accidents is one of my least favorite parts of my job.

I just read a story in the Coloradoan about a young man being killed after the truck he was riding in slipped on ice and ran off the road:

The 25-year-old was riding northbound on U.S. Interstate 25 toward Wyoming around 6 a.m. Sunday when the truck drifted off the right side of the road near mile marker 285 and rolled at least two times. The man was not wearing a seatbelt, according to Colorado State Patrol and was ejected from the vehicle. He died on scene.

via The Coloradoan.

Police are saying the car was probably speeding on the icy highway, and that was a major factor in the accident.

I don’t know why this hit me so hard today.  Maybe I’m still reeling from last weeks tragedy in Connecticut.  But I just need to take a moment to plead with you: please wear a seatbelt, please be mindful of road conditions, and please drive responsibly!

I hope you have a great (and safe) day!
