Boy hurt in vehicle rollover

A 5-year-old boy was airlifted to St. Mary’s Hospital on Saturday afternoon with serious injures after a vehicle rollover, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The injuries didn’t appear to be life-threatening, 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,” 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’s unknown if safety restraints were used. The State Patrol didn’t 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.

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