Authorities: Rock slide victims all in same family

BUENA VISTA, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say the five people who were killed and a girl who survived a Colorado rock slide were members of the same family.

Chaffee (CHAY’-fee) County Undersheriff John Spezze (SPEE’-zee) said Tuesday the family was from Buena (BYOO’-nuh) Vista, Colo.

Their names and ages haven’t been released.

Authorities say the survivor is a teenage girl who is being treated for a broken leg.

The rock slide crashed down Monday on a popular and scenic trail in south-central Colorado.
