Steamboat briefs: Fund created for man hurt in motorcycle wreck

Editor’s note: This story has been updated from its original version to clarify that Mike Gooseman runs, but does not own, Rocky Mountain Concrete Pumping.

A fund has been established to help with medical expenses for Mike "Goose" Gooseman, who was hurt Tuesday in a motorcycle wreck, friend Jake Burwell said. The fund is at Bank of the West in Steamboat Springs. Colorado State Patrol troopers responded to the wreck in North Routt County, but no details were available Wednesday.

Burwell said Gooseman was flown to a hospital on the Front Range with injuries to his head and spine. He said Gooseman is a longtime Steamboat resident and runs Rocky Mountain Concrete Pumping. Gooseman has two children, Burwell said.

Bank of the West is at 555 Lincoln Ave.; call 879-4040.
