ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) - A lightning strike has killed a woman and injured seven other people at Rocky Mountain National Park.

Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson says two of the injured were taken to a hospital by ambulance and five others transported themselves.

Patterson says park officials were notified of the lightning strike at about 1:20 p.m. Friday. It happened on the Ute Crossing Trail, which is located off Trail Ridge Road. Trail Ridge is the nation's highest continuously paved road.

The park did not identify the woman who died, or the people who were injured.

Officials said they would not be releasing additional information Friday.
