Authorities say 38-year-old Christina Satana from Pueblo, Colorado was driving west in the eastbound lanes of I-70. That's when Satana’s vehicle struck another head-on, killing her and the other driver, 15-year-old Alexie Echo-Hawk from Mosca, Colorado.

Satana, who was not wearing her seatbelt, had three young children in the vehicle. They all sustained minor injuries. The passenger in the other vehicle also sustained minor injuries. The victims were transported to Gove County Medical Center for treatment.
