CRAIG — At least three people were involved in a two-vehicle head-on collision Thursday, Jan. 3. All parties involved refused ambulance service.

Emergency responders were called to the crash about 4 p.m. after two vehicles — a pickup truck and a Dodge Dakota — collided on Moffat County Road 103, about one mile from its highway intersection.

The number and the names of the people involved were not immediately available.

When responders arrived, all occupants were outside their vehicles. At least two were treated at the scene, but refused transport and were expected to travel to The Memorial Regional Hospital on their own for treatment, according to scanner traffic at the time.

The cause of the crash was not provided at the scene.

Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, Craig Fire Rescue, and Memorial Regional Health Emergency Medical Services were among the agencies responding to the crash.
