Parker woman dies in Lone Tree crash

Man drifted into oncoming lane of RidgeGate Parkway, police say

A 54-year-old Parker woman died early March 12 in a head-on collision on RidgeGate Parkway in Lone Tree.

Donna Marie Ryan died of multiple blunt force injuries after the collision on RidgeGate about a mile east of Peoria Street, according to reports from the coroner's office and Lone Tree police.

A 27-year-old man driving east on RidgeGate drifted into the westbound lane at about 8:45 a.m., crashing head-on into Ryan's vehicle. She died at the scene, according to police.

The male driver was taken to Littleton Hospital with unknown injuries.

Drugs or alcohol are not suspected as factors in the crash.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing, and the case will be presented to the Douglas County District Attorney's Office. 

The fatal accident occurred half an hour after 28-year-old Ryan Stone ended his multi-jurisdictional high-speed chase with a crash at the nearby intersection of Peoria Street and Lincoln Avenue. Stone's crash and the subsequent investigation backed up and diverted traffic throughout the area for about two hours.
