VIDEO: Colorado Deputy Killed in Rollover Crash

A Las Animas County (CO) Sheriff's Office deputy was killed in a rollover crash Tuesday, reports KMGH.

Dep. Travis Russell, 44, was on patrol in Trinidad, CO, when he veered across the road, into the lanes in the opposite direction on Stonewall Avenue. Russell's Ford Expedition hit an empty SUV, continued the wrong way, and rolled, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

Russell was taken to the hospital, but he didn't survive.

CSP investigators said Russell was on duty, but was not responding to a call at the time of the crash. He was wearing his seat belt.

The Las Animas County Coroner will determine Russell's cause of death.
