Longtime local Jony Larrowe injured after slipping under car

Staff report

A longtime Roaring Fork Valley resident was injured Monday in El Jebel when she was dragged by her vehicle, fell underneath and had her hand run over, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

Jony Larrowe, 86, was taken to an area hospital, but she didn’t suffer life-threatening injuries, according Sgt. David Evridge.

The investigation showed Larrowe left her Honda Element in reverse as she exited the vehicle.

“She reached in to turn the car off. It rolled backwards, and she went with it,” Evridge said. The vehicle has an automatic transmission.

The vehicle dragged Larrowe about 30 feet. It continued another 23 feet, where it struck a GMC Yukon on Clark Drive. The accident occurred around 1:45 p.m.

Larrowe is one of the adventurers who helped shape Aspen as it evolved into a top ski resort after World War II. She and her first husband settled in Aspen in 1950 and scratched out a living so they could pursue their passions in skiing, hiking and climbing.

They opened a small hotel and started a family. Larrowe became involved in many civic endeavors.
