Hayden man seriously hurt in crash expected to recover

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A Hayden man seriously injured in a rollover crash Saturday night is expected to survive.

The crash happened just west of Steamboat Springs near mile marker 125 on U.S. Highway 40.

Jovy Bumanglag, 28, was driving the car when it went off the road and rolled several times.

The Colorado State Patrol was still investigating what caused the car to go off the highway.

Investigators do not believe Bumanglag was impaired by drugs or alcohol, and no citations were issued.

Bumanglag and two children, ages 2 and 4, who were in the back of the car, were not injured.

The front passenger, Sheldon Kemfort, 24, was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the car. He was flown from the accident scene to Denver Health Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Investigators spoke to Bumanglag on Wednesday to check on Kemfort's condition.

Sgt. Scott Elliott said Kemfort was doing well and was expected to be released from the hospital in the next one or two weeks.
