Six Teens Injured In Rollover Accident In Grand Junction

Comments Off

Three teens are in critical condition at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction following a single-car accident on Wednesday.

In total, six teenagers, all from Glenwood Springs, were injured.

It appears a westbound Nissan Sentra driven by a teen, 17, veered off the roadway and through a deer fence, according to Colorado State Patrol troopers.

The vehicle then went airborne over a dry creekbed before hitting the side of an embankment and rolling over.

The kids range in age from 15 to 19. Four of them were not wearing seatbelts and were ejected from the car.

Speed is being investigated as a possible contributing factor, but alcohol and/or drugs are not thought to be involved. The investigation is ongoing.
