The El Paso County Coroner’s Office identified the victim in Sunday’s crash on Cimarron Street beneath Interstate 25 as Joseph Urbanowicz, 31.
According to police, Urbanowicz ran a red light in a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck while driving west on Cimarron. He hit a Dodge Ram pickup heading onto the north I-25 on-ramp.
The Dodge’s driver and passenger were brought to a hospital, police said. Their conditions were not immediately known.
During the collision, a small dog named “Koa” was thrown from the Dodge and ran away, police said. In a tweet Tuesday, police requested the public’s help to find the dog and to contact the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region with information about his whereabouts.
