Craig man involved in rollover accident late Friday night

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

A rollover accident on Colorado Highway 13 sent one man to The Memorial Hospital in the early hours of Saturday.

At about midnight Friday night, Michael Myler, 33, of Craig, rolled his 2006 Dodge pickup truck near mile marker 110 of Colorado Highway 13 while driving south.

Myler sustained minor injuries and was taken to TMH as a precautionary measure.

Neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the crash, but Colorado State Patrol — which responded along with Craig Fire/Rescue — determined that Myler was traveling at an excessive speed along the snowy highway.

With winter weather hitting Northwest Colorado more and more, it's important for drivers to take the conditions into consideration before going out on the road, noted CSP Sgt. Kirk Gardner.

"With the snowfall, people need to slow their speeds down and allow more time for travel," he said.
