Crash victim identified

William John Campbell, 64, of Grand Junction, died in Monday’s single-vehicle rollover accident in the desert north of Grand Junction, according to the Mesa County Coroner’s Office. Campbell was the passenger who was ejected from the 2002 GMC Sierra as it rolled.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by the Colorado State Patrol. Troopers have said a 59-year-old man lost control of the pickup as he was driving south on 27 1/4 Road, three and a half miles north of 
H Road.

The driver and a 16-year-old male passenger were taken to St. Mary’s Hospital with moderate injuries. None of the truck’s occupants were wearing a seat belt. Troopers have said speed appeared to be a factor.

Speed bumps cause ruckus


Mesa County Sheriff’s Department deputies on Monday were called to break up a dispute between two men, which reportedly turned physical over speed bumps — apparent makeshift, unauthorized traffic control devices — recently installed near the 33 Road overpass and Interstate 70, according to an incident report.

A Mesa County Road and Bridge employee had reportedly set up a meeting with the two men after one of them had constructed the speed bumps on the county roadway.

During the meeting, the county employee said both men eventually started yelling at each other, while one pushed the other to the ground. Both were released with warnings.
