RBC | Dinosaur resident Robynne Vonbargen (aka Robin), was found dead in her vehicle on Monday, Dec. 16 in a deep ravine five miles east of Dinosaur along Highway 64. Vonbargen was reported missing six weeks ago.

According to a press release from the Colorado State Patrol, the vehicle was traveling east toward Rangely, went off the right side of the road, hit a sign, a fence and traveled through a field before becoming airborne across a ravine and striking the embankment on the other side. Vonbargen died in the crash. She was not wearing a seatbelt. A family friend who spoke to the HT Monday said her dog was found outside the vehicle, also deceased.

Circumstances surrounding the crash are still under investigation, but the CSP believes the crash occurred on Friday, Nov.1. The vehicle’s location in the ravine was not visible from the roadway, and so was not discovered sooner.

The Colorado State Patrol was assisted in the investigation by the Rio Blanco County Sheriff’s Office, the Rio Blanco County Coroner, the Dinosaur Marshal’s Office, and the Colorado Department of Transportation.
