April 13, 2010
Gary Higgins, 23, of Craig, was killed at 8:30 p.m. Monday when a car he was riding in rolled over and he was ejected from the vehicle, according to a news release from Colorado State Patrol.
The driver of the vehicle, Jaya Oliver, 23, of Craig, and two other passengers, Madelynn Meyring, 18, of Craig, and Aaron Gallegos, 23, of Craig, were transported to The Memorial Hospital.
According to TMH officials, Meyring and Oliver are listed in fair condition.
Gallegos was listed critical condition when he was transferred to another facility.
According to the release, a 2002 GMC Envoy driven by Oliver was traveling eastbound on Moffat County Road 22 when it exited a left-hand curve, began to rotate counter-clockwise and drifted to the opposite side of the road, just west of the intersection with Moffat County Road 103.
After rotating clockwise, the GMC rolled three times before coming to a stop.
All four occupants were ejected from the vehicle.
None of the occupants were wearing seatbelts. Authorities do not suspect drugs and alcohol played part in the crash.
