The Colorado State Patrol is investigating a two-vehicle crash that occurred on Meadowbrook
Parkway near Christy Court in El Paso County that resulted in one fatality.
A white 1990 Nissan 240SX was traveling northeast on Meadowbrook Parkway when the driver lost
control of the vehicle as it began to rotate counter-clockwise. The Nissan continued to rotate
counter-clockwise until its right side collided with the front end of a parked and unattended 2005
Volvo V50 station wagon. After impact, the Nissan rotated clockwise and traveled north for a short
distance before it hopped a curb and came to rest on its wheels. The Volvo was pushed northeast
for a short distance before it came to rest on its wheels in the roadway.
The Nissan's driver, 24-year-old Brian Clowe of Colorado Springs, was not wearing his seatbelt at
the time of the crash. Clowe was transported to a local hospital, where he is being treated for
serious injuries.
The Nissan’s passenger, a 28-year-old male from Colorado Springs, was not wearing his seatbelt
and sustained fatal injuries. The passenger’s name is being withheld until his next-of-kin have been
notified.
At this time, alcohol use and speed are considered to be factors in the crash, which remains under
investigation.
