Silt woman hurt in crash

A 21-year-old Silt woman remained in critical condition Saturday night after she was pulled from a creek after a rollover accident south of Silt early Friday.

The Colorado State Patrol said Teal Harper was driving north on Garfield County Road 331 about 2 1/2 miles south of Interstate 70 when she lost control of her 1983 Subaru station wagon and drove off the right side of the road sometime before 5 a.m.

Harper, who was the sole occupant and wasn’t wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the car as it rolled down a steep embankment, troopers said.

The Subaru came to rest on its wheels in a shallow creek. Harper was found partially
submerged in the creek, according to the State Patrol.

She was initially taken to Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs with critical injuries before later being flown to St. Mary’s Hospital. Her condition had not changed as of Saturday night.

Alcohol and speed are suspected factors in the crash.
