Child injured in rollover near New Castle

A 5-year-old boy was airlifted to a Grand Junction hospital Saturday afternoon after a vehicle he was riding in rolled on a forest service road north of New Castle, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The boy did not appear to have life-threatening injuries, the State Patrol added.

Just after 2 p.m., Saturday, Ruben Jaramillo, 25, New Castle, was driving a 2000 Ford truck on a forest service road about 25 miles north of New Castle, when he reportedly “failed to negotiate a left-handed curve, and the vehicle rolled on its passenger side,” the State Patrol said.

Jaramillo’s 5-year-old son was injured. Jaramillo and the truck’s two other occupants, a 2-year-old boy and a 3-year-old boy, were uninjured.

It is unknown if safety restraints were used. The State Patrol did not release the other children’s relationship with Jaramillo.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but alcohol is suspected to be a contributing factor, the State Patrol said.

Jaramillo was booked into Garfield County Jail on suspicion of vehicular assault, among other charges.
