Steamboat Briefs: Driver falls asleep, crashes into 3 cars in Hayden

A 27-year-old Craig man fell asleep at the wheel Sunday morning as he drove through Hayden, crashing into three cars parked outside Hayden Congregational Church.

Hayden Police Chief Ray Birch said Daniel Arnold was traveling about 35 mph on Jefferson Avenue when he crashed into the cars.

Janet Babish, pastor at the church, said she heard a noise during the service but was unaware of the accident until after the service ended.

She said two cars had minor damage and were still operable.

The third car’s engine was pushed back into the interior of the car and had to be towed away.

The owners of all three cars were in church when the accident happened.

Arnold was transported to Yampa Valley Medical Center and was released by Monday afternoon.

He was cited for careless driving.
