1 injured in Friday rollover accident

Joe Moylan

The Colorado State Patrol, Craig Fire/Rescue, Moffat County Sheriff’s Office and an ambulance from the Memorial Hospital of Craig responded Friday afternoon to a report of a one-car rollover crash on Moffat County Road 200 about seven miles northwest of Craig.

The call was issued at 4:15 p.m.

Sgt. Kirk Gardner, of the Colorado State Patrol, processed the scene and said 17-year-old Kaylie Clawson, driver, and 17-year-old Austin Edwards, passenger, were traveling westbound on CR 200 in a white 1996 Ford Ranger towards CR 15.

The driver lost control exiting a left curve, Gardner said. The truck then skidded off the road, collided with an embankment and rolled over one time before coming to rest on its wheels.

Though the crash is still under investigation, Gardner suspects excessive speed was a contributing factor.

The driver and the passenger, both of Craig, were not wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident, Gardner reported.

Clawson was transported to TMH with non-life threatening injuries. Edwards was released from the scene with no injuries.
