Avon woman dies in weekend accident
Vail, CO Colorado
AVON, Colorado – Shawn Sanders, founder of the “Little Chefs of Vail” cooking program for kids, was killed Saturday in a one-car accident.
Avon Police Chief Bob Ticer said Sanders, 35, was last seen just before noon Oct. 27. She was found about mid-day Oct. 28. Ticer said Sanders was headed eastbound on Wildwood Road. Investigators say her car went off the road into a deep ravine.
Sanders was wearing a seatbelt, but was ejected from her vehicle, which rolled several times before stopping at the bottom of the ravine. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ticer said the Eagle County Coroner’s office had scheduled an autopsy, and the Colorado State Patrol is helping Avon police investigate the accident.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
