CARBONDALE ” A 52-year-old Carbondale man suffered serious injuries Sunday afternoon in an accident at the intersection of Highways 133 and 82.

A 1989 Dodge Colt station wagon, driven by Kennadean Ware, was westbound on Highway 82 at about 3:15 p.m. Ware failed to stop for a red light, according the Colorado State Patrol, and tried to turn onto Highway 133. He turned in front of a 2008 Honda Pilot driven by Jennifer Hollander, 37, of Aspen, who was headed east, according to the patrol.

The two vehicles collided; Ware’s car spun around and came to a stop in the intersection.

Hollander’s vehicle skidded into a 2007 Jeep Compass driven by Eric Perez-Hernandez, 34, of Woodlands, Texas. The Jeep, which had been stopped on Highway 133 at the traffic light, was pushed into a 2000 Toyota Tundra driven by Ray Bradford, 55, of Carbondale.

Ware was not wearing a seat belt and was transported to Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs with serious injuries, according to the state patrol. No one else was hurt.

The Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, Carbondale Police, Colorado Department of Transportation and the Carbondale Fire Department responded to the scene, along with the state patrol.
