Investigators say Steven Ashmore, 21, might have been drunk when he was driving east in the westbound lanes of Interstate
70 early Friday morning. Ashmore crashed head-on into Justin Markel, 19, at about 4 a.m. just west of the Rural Keystone interchange.
Both drivers were trapped for about 30 minutes while fire crews worked to get them out of the wreckage. Ashmore is being treated
for life-threatening injuries. Markel is in serious condition with leg and arm injuries. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
