Single motorcycle crash injures two riders on Highway 133 near Redstone

Incident occurred near Hayes Creek Falls south of Redstone

A single motorcycle crashed on Highway 133 near Redstone on Sunday afternoon, injuring both the driver and a passenger on the bike, according to Colorado State Patrol Sergeant Troy Kessler, who is a public information officer for the state patrol.

The call came in at 1:11 p.m. of a crash near mile marker 49.5, which is about two miles south of Redstone near Hayes Creek Falls. 

A 51-year-old male from Buena Vista was driving the motorcycle, accompanied by a 42-year-old female passenger, Kessler said. He didn’t know where the female passenger was from and said he could not yet release their names. 

Both of the riders were transported to the hospital with “potentially life-threatening injuries.” 

Kessler said he did not know how the crash occurred but in the notes on the accident, “There’s no other vehicle listed, and there’s nothing in the notes to indicate another vehicle was involved,” indicating that just the single motorcycle crashed.
