UPDATE:

Cheyenne police say alcohol may be to blame for a Monday night crash that put both drivers in the hospital.

Officer Kevin Malatesta says the crash happened around 9 p.m. at the intersection of College Drive and E. Pershing Boulevard.

"A 2010 Toyota Camry, driven by Marc Woods, 47, of Cheyenne, entered the intersection, where it was struck by a 1994 Ford F-150 driven by a 17-year-old male from Cheyenne," said Malatesta.

"Both Woods and the juvenile driver were transported to CRMC," he added. "Woods was then transported to Swedish Medical Center in Denver with life-threatening injuries."

Malatesta says an accident reconstruction is being performed, but evidence suggests that the teen was driving while under the influence.

He's asking anyone who witnessed the crash or saw the teen driving erratically prior to the crash who hasn't spoken with police to call Officer Serkedakis at (307) 633-6682.
