Friday car chase ends with crash in Hayden
A car chase Friday evening ended with an Oak Creek man crashing his car into a ditch on the east side of Hayden.
Routt County Undersheriff Ray Birch said the chase started in Moffat County and stop sticks were used to try to stop Joshua Benjamin Flaharty.
After crashing his car, Flaharty was evaluated by emergency responders for injuries to his face.
It was unclear how the car chase started, but Birch said Flaharty had warrants for his arrest out of Moffat and Routt counties.
Birch said in Routt County, Flaharty was wanted for not appearing in court related to incidents in Oak Creek. Police there think Flaharty was responsible for setting off homemade bottle bombs in the town in November. He was arrested on suspicion of possession of an incendiary device, a Class 4 felony, and reckless endangerment, a Class 3 misdemeanor.

As part of the new program, the Hargadines are asking residents to collect and donate found antlers, the proceeds of which will go toward scholarships and health care for orphans in the program.

Some students are choosing to chart their own course after graduation, bucking the conventional path of college or trade school, but with no less ambition than their degree-seeking peers. Moffat County High School senior Tyler Gonzales is one such student, who has chosen to dive into a full-time job at Chaos Ink after graduating and feed his passion for design and entrepreneurialism.
