Pueblo woman, 94, killed in crash

A 94-year-old Pueblo woman was killed when the car in which she was a passenger was hit broadside Monday afternoon.

The elderly woman was identified as Mae Stockton, according to Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer. He said Ms. Stockton died at Parkview hospital emergency room about 2:24 p.m. from multiple traumatic injuries.

Police Sgt. Richard Patton said Stockton was a passenger in a Ford Escort driven by her daughter, Clarice Snyder, 75, when it was struck broadside by a Chevy Lumina driven by Richard Shifflet, 18. After the impact, Snyder's vehicle struck a Ford pickup, driven by Thomas Mondragon, 47, that was stopped at a nearby stop sign.

The accident occurred about 1:45 p.m. at the intersection of Eagleridge Drive and Elizabeth Street. Snyder's vehicle was traveling south on Elizabeth and had just pulled away from a stop sign at Eagleridge when it was struck on the passenger side by Shifflet's vehicle.

Stockton was pinned inside the Escort and had to be extricated before being transported to the hospital. She was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Snyder also was transported to Parkview where she was being held for observation late Monday, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Mondragon and Shifflet were not injured.

Patton said alcohol and drugs are not suspected to be factors in the crash, but investigators believe excessive speed may have played a part in the cause of the accident. No citations have been issued and charges are pending, he said.
