Walsenburg teen injured in crash

WALSENBURG- A 17 year-old Walsenburg boy was seriously injured early Saturday morning, when the car he was riding in careened out of control on North Welton Ave in Walsenburg and rolled.  Two other youths in the car were also injured.  All three were ejected from the 1996 Chevrolet Blazer.

    After the accident, the youths called another friend to come and get them. On the way to the hospital, that friend drove up the side of an embankment and rolled her Monte Carlo as well.

    Another friend was called to get them, who managed to transport them all out to SPRHC.  Two of the youths were airlifted out due to the severity of their injuries.
