It seems the injuries received in a crash with a trash truck in Fort Collins last week proved to be too severe and have claimed the life of a 29-year-old man.

29-year-old Charles Hallenback died Saturday from the injuries he received last week when he rear-ended a garbage truck on South Taft Hill Road. The garbage truck was waiting to turn into the landfill when Hallenback failed to see that the truck had stopped and smashed into the back end of the garbage truck. The truck driver was not injured.

The accident closed the road for several hours.
