Kay Marie Matthews was driving northbound near mile post 246 when she struck a deer carcass and lost control of her car, crossing the center line and striking a Toyota sedan head-on that was driven by Brady Kyle Simons, 19.

Matthews later died at Gunnison Valley Hospital. Simons was evacuated by medical helicopter to an unspecified hospital in very critical condition.
