1 man arrested for DUI after rollover — 3 juveniles were in vehicle

One man was arrested for a DUI after a rollover accident near Elkhead Reservoir occurred Saturday. The man had three juveniles in the truck at the time of the incident, according to law enforcement

There were no fatalities in the rollover that occurred at about 9:35 p.m. Saturday, said Corporal Brian Bagley of the Colorado State Patrol.

The rollover occurred on the east side of Elkhead Reservoir, on Moffat County Road 28, about two miles east of Moffat County Road 29.

The vehicle, a 1997 Chevy Suburban, was traveling south on a road that generally goes east and west, Bagley said. When it entered a curve to the left, he continued, it skidded off the right side of the road and flipped over onto its roof as it skidded down a steep embankment before coming to a stop.

The driver, Jerrad Carney, 30, from Craig, “was arrested and charged with DUI and additional charges,” Bagley said. Carney was taken to the Moffat County jail.

Bagley said three passengers, in addition to the driver, were in the Suburban. He said all three of the passengers were juveniles — and consequently he could not release any additional information about them.

The investigation of the incident is not complete, Bagley said, adding that it’s not yet clear who was, or was not, wearing seat belts.

“Seat belt use is one of the issues we’re still looking at,” Bagley said.
