Steamboat man remains in critical condition
Steamboat Springs resident Doug Smith was listed in critical condition Tuesday, three days after he sustained severe injuries in a motorcycle accident.
Smith remains on life support at Denver Health Medical Center. Smith's family was expected to travel to Denver on Tuesday or today, a family friend said.
Smith was riding a motorcycle at about 6 p.m. Sunday two miles west of Steamboat Springs on Routt County Road 33 when he apparently went off the right side of the road onto a gravel shoulder and lost control of the motorcycle, a Colorado State Patrol news release said Monday.
The motorcycle rolled one-quarter time onto its left side, throwing Smith 56 feet. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, according to the release.
The accident still is under investigation.
Smith owns D & A Trucking Co. and lives on RCR 33. Smith's longtime companion, Ann Reis, is in Denver with him.
A fund has been set up in Smith's name at Wells Fargo bank. Call Wells Fargo employee and Smith friend Cheryl Antalek at 879-0550 for more information.
