Craig teen injured in crash


— An 18-year-old Craig woman was hurt Monday after she lost control of the vehicle she was driving on Routt County Road 27 and landed on a barbed-wire fence.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Tonya Cowan said Judith French was driving a 1990 Nissan Sentra south on C.R. 27 near Twentymile Road when she drifted off the road, blew out a tire and went over a ditch landing on a barbed-wire fence.

French sustained serious injuries and was taken to Yampa Val-ley Medical Center, Cowan said.

French was listed in good condition Tuesday afternoon, hospital officials said.

French was wearing her seat belt at the time of the accident. French was given a citation for careless driving as a result of the accident.

Cowan said muddy roads may have contributed to the accident, because it had been raining most of Monday.
