Five cars were involved in the crash Sunday on Interstate 70 near the Morrison Exit. Several people suffered serious injuries and one adult woman died at the scene.

It was around 11am, troopers say, when the driver of a white pickup heading west bound on I-70 crossed the median into oncoming traffic, striking multiple vehicles.

A second victim has died of their injuries.

"Jeffery Stumpf, 54 of Evergreen, was driving a white 2001 Chevrolet 2500 pickup westbound when he crossed the grassy median into eastbound lanes, striking the front of a 2006 Toyota 4Runner, the Colorado State Patrol said.

Both vehicles rotated counter-clockwise. The Chevrolet then struck a 2017 white Jeep Wranger, causing it to roll onto its passenger side.

A second Jeep in the eastbound lanes, a 2000 red Wrangler Rubicon, was hit in the front as the Chevrolet was still rotating, the Colorado State Patrol said.

As the Chevrolet came to rest, a black Honda Civic was hit on the left side.

Stumpf was taken to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood where he was pronounced dead."

Jeffery Stumpf was owner/operator of Big Kahuna BBQ, events catering. It's not known why he crossed over the highway at the only break in the median.

The people who came together in the moments after that fatal I-70 wreck

A former Navy flight surgeon stopped on I-70 Sunday to see if he could help right after a multi-car crash killed two people and injured several others. . .

“What really impressed me is how this group of total strangers came together as almost an organized body. I was a Navy flight surgeon, we train for this mass casualty scenarios, usually there was somebody in charge. There was nobody in charge and yet they all acted as one well-oiled team to take care of these other strangers, even some of them risking some dangers, gasoline, hot engines to make sure these other people were taken care of.”

Stumpf, owner of Big Kahuna BBQ in the El Rancho area, was a staunch supporter of Drive Smart, the area nonprofit dedicated to preventing traffic-related fatalities and injuries.
“He was a major sponsor of Drive Smart,” said Jackie Mohr, the organization’s former executive director. “He was an amazing guy with a huge heart.”
She said he brought his food truck to all five Barks & Belts 5Ks, the pond hockey tournament and other fund-raising activities that Drive Smart sponsored specifically because he wanted to help the organization.
“He genuinely with his heart believed in Drive Smart and its mission,” she said.

GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4) – The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office says toxicology results on Jeff Stumpf, the driver who crossed Interstate 70 into eastbound lanes killing a mother from Idaho Springs on July 30, was legally drunk. He had a blood alcohol measurement of .146. In Colorado .08 is considered DUI.

Chief Deputy Coroner Dan Pruitt said Stumpf also had evidence of ephedrine, a stimulant used for weight loss and also as a nasal decongestant, in his system. Testing also revealed a metabolite of cocaine, suggesting cocaine use and evidence of THC, pointing to marijuana use.

There is no medical conclusion on his death yet, including whether Stumpf had a heart attack, or whether he had suffered a seizure or was unconscious at the time of the crash.
