Bike crash victim flown to Denver

Staff report

A woman riding her bike home from City Market on Tuesday crashed near No Problem Bridge and was later helicoptered to Denver with serious head injuries, authorities said.

The unidentified woman was about 50 years old, though she was unconscious when police arrived and her hometown was not available Wednesday, said Aspen Assistant Chief Bill Linn.

The woman was riding her bicycle down Neale Avenue toward Herron Park when a witness said she went into a “death wobble,” said Pitkin County Sheriff’s Deputy Anthony Todaro. The witness said she hit the street head-first and wasn’t wearing a helmet, he said.

Todaro said he arrived as the woman was being put into an ambulance, though he observed a significant amount of blood on the street.
