Father of 2-year-old killed in I-70 crash struggling to come to terms with loss
Mother was taking daughter to father's house

DENVER -- Family members say the father of a 2-year-old girl killed in a crash on I-70 Friday afternoon is struggling to come to terms with his loss.

Sophia Rivera was in the back seat of her mom's car when the crash happened.

"She was going to drop Sophia off at her father's house and never made it," said Corenia Rivera, a paternal aunt.

Investigators at the Colorado State Patrol say the mother was eastbound on I-70 when she suddenly slammed on her brakes, lost control of her car, careened through the median and into the westbound lanes, and then struck a pickup truck.

Corenia has set up a GoFundMe account to help the young dad with funeral expenses.
