CRAIG — A two-vehicle crash at the corner of West First and Ranney streets sent one driver to the hospital Oct. 2.
The collision, which involved a bobtailed semi-truck and a passenger car, occurred about 11:45 a.m. and, according to Colorado State Patrol Trooper Gary Cutler, was caused by the 25-year-old truck driver, Codie Blondell, of Utah.
Blondell was cited for a traffic violation.
The 54-year-old female driver of the passenger car was able to move from her seat to the gurney for transport to The Memorial Hospital.
The extent of her “non-incapacitating” injuries is unknown, Cutler said. He had no information about a passenger who was in one of the vehicles at the time of the crash.
The Craig Police Department, Colorado State Patrol, Craig Fire Rescue, and Memorial Regional Health Emergency Medical Service were among the agencies responding to the incident.
Friday marked one year since the Silver Creek Fire sparked northwest of Kremmling in Routt National Forest and burned more than 20,120 acres, according to data from the Rocky Mountain Incident Coordination Center.
