Fatal Truck Accident Near Colorado National Monument

| (Google+)

wheelIn an unfortunate symmetry of events, a rollover truck accident near the west entrance of the Colorado National Monument took the life of John Luther Fulmer III last Thursday. Less than two years earlier, his son John Luther Fulmer IV also died in an auto accident.

One distinction between the two fatal accidents was that Fulmer III was the driver, while his son was the passenger 17 months ago.

According to Colorado State Patrol Col. Dennis O’Leary, Fulmer’s 2005 GMC Sierra truck veered off the road, returned and then veered off again. The Sierra rolled over once ejecting Fulmer, who was not wearing a seat belt at the time. Authorities pronounced him dead on the scene.

Mike Wiggins, a member of the editorial staff for The Daily Sentinel, recaps the younger Fulmer’s tragic car accident in 2009:

Fullmer’s son, John L. Fullmer IV, 23, died Feb. 15, 2009, when a vehicle he was riding in slammed into a pole on U.S. Highway 6&50 at 24 3/4 Road. The driver, 23-year-old Jesse Reed, pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and driving under the influence and was sentenced to a year in jail and six years in community corrections.

In an interview with The Daily Sentinel last November, Fullmer III said he had forgiven Reed for causing his son’s death.
