Groves was at the scene of a vehicle that slid off the highway near mile marker 47 just west of Roggen when he was killed.

Carpenter was injured and taken to Platte Valley Medical Center. with moderate injuries.

High speed in poor driving conditions — during the blizzard — are being investigated as a possible cause of the fatal crash.

Groves, who had been with CSP since 2007, is survived by his partner of two years.

Charges have not been filed in the case.
