SHERIFF’S OFFICE SEEKS PUBLIC’S ASSISTANCE IN SKIER COLLISION
SUMMIT COUNTY, CO – The Summit County Sheriff’s Office has joined forces with Metro Denver Crime Stoppers and is seeking the public’s assistance in a skier collision from January 2, 2017. Witnesses and anyone with information about this collision are encouraged to contact Detective Scott Wagner at 970-423-8913 with any information they have regarding this incident. The snowboarder was described as 5’9”, 160 pounds, wearing a black and red Ruroc Inferno full-face helmet and light brown pants. For anyone wishing to remain anonymous you may call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
We previously released that on Monday, January 2, 2017 at approximately 3 p.m. the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a skier collision on the Haywood Ski Trail at Keystone Ski Resort. An unidentified snowboarder reportedly collided with the victim and left the scene without providing name and contact information. Based upon the reported information this would be a violation of the Skier Safety Act law which required all skiers/boarders involved in a collision stop, exchange information and summon aid.
The Keystone Ski Patrol provided medical aid to the injured woman and transportation off the ski-run and to the medical clinic. This case is under active investigation and no further information is being released at this time.
