From the Street–Speedy Recovery Darrel

by maximum Safety Awareness

ECT’s good friend – Darrel Weigert was in a very serious automobile accident this past Sunday (20MAY) morning.  Reports received at the ECT indicated Darrel was riding alone in Darryl’s beautifully maintained – British Racing Green, Triumph Spitfire (photo below) when it was hit on Rte. 6 (driving inbound to Minturn) by a truck making a U-Turn near the Forest Ranger Station at Dowd Junction.  Reports continued that Darrel’s injuries included…several broken bones (leg, back, facial).  More reports received at the ECT Sunday afternoon stated that…Darrel was on his way into Surgery at the Vail Valley Medical Center/Hospital when the Hospital’s Elevator system went “inoperative” due to the Hospital’s water fire sprinkler system – inadvertently set off during scheduled maintenance rendering the Hospitals elevators unusable/unsafe – Sunday afternoon…more details when the ECT gets them.  Thank goodness Darrel is still with us!  That was a close one!

ECT encourages “maximum safety awareness” when operating your vehicle in Eagle County – on Sunday mornings.  And every other times driving as well.

Happy News this week!

Our Eagle River Fire Protection District had two new Firefighters sworn in last week!  When you see Jared Baughn and Luke Goss around town this week be sure to congratulate them on completing their Fire Protection training!  ERFPD Chief Karl Bauer swore in the newest members to our Eagle River Fire Protection team.
