CRAIG — The Maybell General Store is without fuel pumps following a single-vehicle rollover crash Sunday.

The crash happened about 9:32 p.m. Sunday, when a 48-year-old Brooklyn, New York, man was traveling westbound on U.S. Highway 40 and drove his 2010 Subaru off the right side of the roadway, according to Colorado State Patrol Capt. Douglas J. Conrad.

The man’s vehicle rolled and destroyed the fuel pumps at the Maybell General Store, Conrad said.

The driver was not injured, and State Patrol reported he was not impaired. He was cited.

According to Mary Schminkey, owner of Maybell General Store, the business remains open, but replacing the fuel pumps may take as long as four weeks. She said she is working with an equipment distributor out of Grand Junction in an attempt to get the pumps replaced sooner.
