May 8, 2014
The Copper Mountain Fire Department responded Wednesday, April 23, to a report of a one-car crash on Colorado Highway 91 near milepost 13 in Summit County.
Copper 1 was the first to respond to the non-emergency traffic call, which was initiated at about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. Upon their arrival at the scene, firefighters found one car in a snowbank just a few feet from a grove of trees, according to a fire department news release.
The driver was sitting in a Climax Mine security truck complaining about a bruise, but declined medical attention from an ambulance. Firefighters radioed for Engine 1 to respond to perform patient care and check the stability of the driver’s vehicle.
Copper 1 assumed Highway 91 command and deployed north of the incident to conduct safety control operations. Command was turned over to Engine 1 upon its arrival.
Colorado State Patrol troopers also responded to the incident. Workers with the Colorado Department of Transportation followed to drop sand on the highway.
