Steamboat Briefs: Hayden man killed in rollover Wednesday night


A Hayden man was killed Wednesday evening after a one-vehicle rollover at mile marker 7 on Routt County Road 53 near Hayden.

Martin Bugg, 42, was ejected from his vehicle and was dead when law enforcement officials reached the scene. Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg said that no other vehicles were involved and that Bugg was not wearing a seat belt.

Ryg said that alcohol was suspected to be a factor in the crash and that the county planned to arrange a toxicology screen.

Vehicle registrations turned in Friday aren't late

The Routt County Motor Vehicle Department will be closed this Friday as part of a countywide furlough program, but residents may still turn in vehicle registration and renewal payments on that day.

Barb Bond, Routt County Motor Vehicle Department supervisor, said payments placed in the mailbox outside the department's office Friday would be processed Monday, Nov. 2, as if they were received in October. Because there is a one-month grace period, that means if a registration or renewal payment was due in September, it can be turned in Friday without being assessed a $100 late fee.
