Emergency responders work at the scene of rollover accident May 8 along Routt County Road 80 about two miles north of Hayden. Hayden resident Kimberly Fournier was killed in the crash.

— A Hayden woman was killed Saturday evening in a one-vehicle rollover wreck north of Hayden, Colorado State Patrol Sgt. Scott Elliott said.

Kimberly Fournier, 41, of Hayden, died after being ejected from and pinned underneath an SUV on Routt County Road 80 about two miles north of Hayden. Fournier was driving east on C.R. 80 when she lost control of the vehicle on a curve, Elliott said. The vehicle went off the right side of the road and rolled 1 1/2, he said.

Fournier was not wearing a seat belt, and no one else was in the vehicle, Elliott said. The roads were dry and weather conditions were good at the time of the wreck, he said.

The call to emergency res­ponders came at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Colorado State Patrol was handling the investigation. The Hayden Police Department, Routt County Sheriff’s Office and West Routt Fire Protection District also responded.

Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg arrived on scene at about 7:30 p.m. and left about 30 minutes later. He said an autopsy would be performed to determine the cause of death.

Elliott said more information about the circumstances and potential cause of the wreck would be available late Saturday or early today. A phone number for Fournier’s family could not be found late Saturday.

Wow....the pilot wasted no time getting this story on here today. Have a little consideration!! Maybe give the family and friends a chance to cope with it before you tell the story. The fact that you had this posted before they had a chance to get the coroner on scene is really not cool.

littleacres stop trying to find stuff to complain and stir stuff up about. The pilot has a job to report the news as soon as it comes them, and they did their job. I'm sure the staff at the Pilot was just as upset about reporting this news as you and I are to hear it. They are people too, but they are people with a job. Don't whine about people doing their job. To whomever this article was about and their family members I am deeply sorry for your loss and hope that you have friends and communities surrounding you to lift you back up.

I agree with you localboy17,.they do have a job to do. I'm not trying to find something to complain about, I am not one of those people that gets on here and complains about everything I read.. I was just saying that maybe they could give it a while.

Littleacres is right, have some respect! I guess the Pilot is so bored and slow on news that they just do whatever even if it hurts the family members, report news hot off the press in minutes. That being said, why do they, the Pilot/Daily Press not report such as a word on the woman who, over 3 weeks ago in Craig, allegedly threatened a judge in court and grabbed an officer's weapon, and is in jail for so many charges? In a town where a stray dog has made the news, why is this so?

Its all about money and power, we do not have a free press, we have a paid press, its a lot like prostitution, the high bidder wins!

I know the Fournier family, MY deepest condolences to them, she had many medical issues, and was a very good person.

SHAME ON THE PILOT, YOU ARE TOTAL HYPOCRITS!!! To Marie Antiounette!!

Nothing is a secret in the Yampa Valley for long, regardless if it is in the paper or not, this is not the big city, so be fair and balanced, understand Karma or suffer from it!

You can't possibly believe that they published this article before they were able to contact the family. And it is a very small town, and nothing goes unnoticed for long. It isn't showing disrespect at all. It's not like they said why she crashed at it was all her fault or something. They simply said there was a crash that killed a person. There is no disrespect in that, just being honest and reporting. There is no need to argue this when a family has lost someone. I simply commented in the first place because in a situation like this where someone is lost, there is no need to open your mouth in the first place.
