Motorcycle crash injures 2, partially closes Hwy 134

Updated Saturday 10 a.m. with more information from Colorado State Patrol.

Emergency officials responded to a motorcycle crash outside Kremmling Friday afternoon, where two people were injured and one was airlifted to the hospital.

Around 4:45 p.m. Friday, Grand and Routt county first responders, as well as Colorado State Patrol, responded to a motorcycle crash on US Highway 134 near milepost 14.

According to CSP, a blue Harley Davidson carrying a driver and a passenger was traveling westbound on Highway 134 over Gore Pass with a group of motorcycles. While navigating a left hand curve, the Harley Davidson traveled off the road and overturned.

Both the driver and the passenger suffered injuries from the crash and the passenger was initially unresponsive, according to CSP. CPR performed on-scene resuscitated the passenger, who was transported by ambulance to Steamboat Springs.

The driver was airlifted to the hospital with a serious head injury to Denver.

Highway 134 was closed both directions for around 30 minutes while the flight-for-life helicopter landed.

CSP is still investigating the incident and noted speed may be a contributing factor.
