Sunday pickup crash at Craig Cemetery grave matter
CRAIG — A single-vehicle crash ended with the front bumper of a large pickup truck wrapped around a tree in Craig Cemetery Sunday evening.
The crash happened about 5:30 p.m. Jan. 27, when the driver of a Ford F-150 headed north on Ashley Road veered to the east and drove through a snowbank and an old wire fence before coming crashing into a tree, said Craig Police Sgt. Tony Fandel.
Three adults were in the front seat of the vehicle at the time of the crash, and none appeared to have been wearing seat belts, Fandel added.
All were transported to the hospital with injuries, and one of the passengers reportedly sustained fractured bones. All were expected to be released the same evening, Fandel said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation, and no names or other specific information was being released until the investigation is complete, Fandel said, adding that no one was ticketed at the time of the accident.
In addition to Craig Police Department, Craig Fire Rescue, Colorado State Patrol, and Craig Fire/Rescue responded to the crash.
CPD officers will lead the investigation.
