Colorado State Police say Jaramillo Herrera was towing four children on the back of a Ford F-250 on a snow-packed and icy road when one of the children lost control of her sled. Herrera stopped the truck after one of the children slipped off their sled.

However, Ayleen Herrera, 10, who was on a separate sled, was unable to stop. She slid “into the rear of the Ford, struck the undercarriage, and slid underneath the Ford.” The young girl suffered fatal injuries.

While drug and alcohol use is not suspected, the crash remains under investigation.
