By John Bear Staff WriterApril 9, 2019

Longmont police say a man killed in a January crash was driving nearly twice the speed limit and was high at the time of the crash.

Longmont Police Cmdr. Joel Post wrote in an email that 24-year-old Weston Alexander Roseberry, of Fort Collins, was traveling northbound on Hover Street on Jan. 18 when he crashed into a 69-year-old woman was traveling southbound and entering the Village at the Peaks mall.

Post said Roseberry’s Ford Mustang spun out of control, crossed over the median on Hover Street and was struck by another vehicle. Two other vehicles were also involved in the crash.

Post said that an investigation determined that Roseberry was under the influence of marijuana at the time of the crash. Speed also has been listed as a determining factor.

Roseberry was taken to Longmont United Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
