PINON, Colo. (AP) - Two people are dead after a car crashed into a moped on a rural stretch of Interstate 25 in southern Colorado.

The crash happened Thursday night about 15 miles north of Pueblo. The Colorado State Patrol says the moped’s driver, 51-year-old Darren Capanna of Pueblo, was riding in the middle of the right lane, apparently without any lights, when he was hit by a Volkswagen Golf. Troopers say Capanna was killed when he was thrown from the moped and run over by a pickup truck that fled the scene.

Another driver who tried to avoid the wreck, 61-year-old Diane Hayes of Pueblo, was also killed. Her two passengers were seriously injured.
