Pickup rollover near Hayden sends several to Craig hospital
A vehicle rollover on US Highway 40 sent several people to the hospital Saturday night.
The incident occurred around 5 p.m. Saturday near mile marker 104 several miles west of Hayden when a Dodge Ram pickup truck believed to be headed eastbound veered right off the highway and rolled over two-and-a-half times.
Members of leading agency Colorado State Patrol believe the accident may have been impacted by water on the road from rain.
Officials said they believe there were six parties involved, two of whom were ejected from the truck and may have sustained injuries.
Parties involved were taken to Memorial Regional Health in Craig by MRH and West Routt ambulances.
Also responding to the accident were Hayden Police Department, Routt County Sheriff’s Office, West Routt Fire District and Craig Fire/Rescue.
State Patrol has not yet released names of those involved.
The Craig Press will have more on this story as it develops.
