GYPSUM ” A 14-year-old boy fled the scene after an accident that seriously injured a woman on a motorcycle Saturday afternoon in Gypsum, according to authorities.

The driver of the pickup truck was contacted by law enforcement at his home after the accident, according to a statement from the Colorado State Patrol. The agency is actively investigating the crash, the statement said, though alcohol and speed were not considered factors.

The 14-year-old driver reportedly turned in front of the motorcycle, driven by 55-year-old Patricia Arden, of Castle Rock, as it was moving down U.S. Highway 6, the statement said. Arden went down with the motorcycle and may have been run over by the pickup, the statement said. Arden was flown to St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction with serious injuries, the statement said.
