Two Arizona nurses, Diana Robles, Ofelia Figueroa-Perez and hired driver Don Fehd were killed during an off-roading tour of Colorado’s San Juan Mountains when their Jeep plunged over a cliff on Monday, a report said.
Diana Robles, 28 and Ofelia Figueroa-Perez, 60, from Yuma, Arizona, and hired driver Don Fehd, 72, all died when their 2022 Jeep Gladiator tumbled over the the edge of Ouray County Road 361, also known as Camp Bird Road around midday on September 12.
The vehicle first fell 100 feet to the bottom of a cliff, according to police and the outlet. It then rolled about 140 feet down a rocky embankment, ejecting Fehd, officials said.
The bodies of the two sightseers were found in the car, which rested on its roof near the bank of a creek, police said.
Moments before the fatal crash, Robles had reportedly taken a snap of the iconic Imogene Pass, according to the New York Post.
It was the second deadly crash in the area in a week, with another Arizona resident killed and his wife injured when their all terrain vehicle suffered a similar disaster near Imogene Pass, the Daily Press reported.
Robles and Figueroa-Perez, who were niece and aunt that both worked as nurses at Yuma Regional Medical Center, had gone to the Colorado mountains for a getaway.
Fehd worked at Colorado West Jeep Rentals and Tours, where he was known for his “quirky, genuine way” with his passengers, according to The Ouray County Plaindealer.
