Horse dies in Monday morning crash

Matt Stensland

— A 32-year-old Steamboat Springs woman was cited with careless driving after a crash Monday morning near mile marker 13 on Routt County Road 179.

According to the Colorado State Patrol, the woman was driving a truck towing a trailer containing four horses. Trooper Matt Normandin said the woman reached down to get her coffee and drove over a steep drop-off.

The woman was not injured, but one of the horses died. The other three horses did not appear to be injured.

“Distracted driving is a major contributing factor in crashes in Colorado, and we urge people to be cautious while driving and to drive safely,” Normandin said.
