Highlands Ranch car crash leaves one dead

Vehicle went through four yards before flipping


A woman was killed in an automobile crash early the morning of April 10 in Highlands Ranch.

Douglas County Sheriff's Office patrol was dispatched to the single-vehicle crash at approximately 2 a.m., according to a spokeswoman from the sheriff's office. The single occupant, 58-year-old Teresa Hood, was heading eastbound on University Boulevard, east of Cresthill Lane, near Highlands Ranch High School, when she went off the side of the road. The vehicle went through the yards of four homes before hitting a deck in one yard and flipping, the sheriff's office said.

Hood was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy is scheduled for April 10, according to a news release from the Douglas County Coroner's Office.

Speed was likely not a factor in the crash, according to the sheriff's office.

No further information was immediately available. The coroner's office and sheriff's office continue to investigate the incident.
