Three people injured in accident on C.R. 129

Three people were injured Tuesday afternoon when their vehicle ran off Routt County Road 129. They were traveling south when the vehicle veered off the right-hand side of the road near mile marker 8, Routt County Sheriff’s Lt. Richard Wood said.

Two of the occupants were driven to Yampa Valley Medical Center in private vehicles. The driver, who suffered a head injury, stayed at the damaged vehicle and refused medical treatment when an ambulance arrived at the scene, Wood said.

The driver had blood on his head but was coherent, he said. The vehicle was significantly damaged in the crash, and the gas tank was punctured though no fire started, Wood said.

The names of the occupants were unavailable at press time.
