Keystone man in serious condition after crash

KEYSTONE – A Keystone man is in serious condition at St. Anthony’s intensive care unit in Denver after crashing his car early Monday.

Ty Brasher, 34, was involved in a one-car accident Monday at Highway 6 and Swan Mountain Road. Brasher was headed east on Highway 6 when he reportedly lost control of his car, which rolled once. Brasher was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the car.

His injuries are not considered life threatening but according to a hospital spokeswoman, “he has suffered multiple trauma.”

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Jason Bachman talked to Brasher at Summit Medical Center, requesting a sample of his blood for an alcohol test. Brasher refused, said Bachman, who added he could smell alcohol on Brasher’s breath.

Refusal of a blood alcohol test means the mandatory loss of a license for one year.

Brasher was flown from Summit Medical Center to St. Anthony’s Central via Flight For Life.
