4 Colorado State Patrol troopers hit in 4 days

Slow down, especially around emergency service vehicles

Daily staff report

With snowstorms making driving conditions slick and dangerous, state officials are pleading for drivers to slow down, especially around vehicles on the side of the road — and especially emergency service vehicles.

Starting Thursday, four Colorado State Patrol troopers’ vehicles have been hit while on the job.

The fourth happened Sunday in Weld County when a trooper’s vehicle was hit while the officer was investigating a crash on Interstate 25. The first three happened in La Plata County, Lakewood and Garfield County.
