Monday morning an SUV crashed into two parked vehicles on North Nevada Avenue after an attempt to avoid a head-on collision with an oncoming car. Two men were crushed in between their van and another vehicle, according to a Colorado Springs Police Department spokesperson. One of the men lost his life while the other suffered severe leg injuries.
The accident occurred around 9:00 a.m. on the 1400 block of N. Nevada Avenue. Mark Meschelle, 46, and Ken Baker, 44, were getting tools and supplies out of the back of their van when the car parked behind them was pushed forward, pinning them in between the two vehicles.
Meschelle and Baker were badly injured and taken to the hospital. Meschelle later died from his injuries and Baker suffered two crushed legs and will require surgery.
Mark Meschelle leaves behind a wife, three children, and one grandchild.
Police are still looking for a small black pickup truck that may have been involved in the fatal accident. Anyone with information is encouraged to call 444-7000 or Crimestoppers at 634-STOP.
