Aaron Toothaker, Tiffany Geisler and two young children were rescued by Delta County Search and Rescue early Nov. 17 after spending much of the night stuck in snow in the Leroux Creek area.
The four were reported missing after they failed to return from a short ride up Leroux Creek Road.
Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the area but turned back because of the snow level. Members of Delta County Search and Rescue reached the area on ATVs and were able to retrieve the four from the area.
On Nov. 14, sheriff's deputies assisted the Colorado State Patrol with a three-car accident on Highway 92 near the bottom of the Hotchkiss grade. Vehicles were stopped at a CDOT construction zone when the last car in line was struck in the rear and pushed forward into the vehicle in front of it. There were no injuries.blog comments powered by Disqus
